Party Manifestos And Whether They Influence Voting Pattern

Written By Justice Mingle - The die is cast and the biggest opposition party, the NDC has launched its manifesto for the 2020 general election. This comes at the back of a similar event by the ruling party, NPP. The launch therefore gives the electorate the opportunity to assess the political party with the right message and policies to take the country out of the quagmire it finds itself.

Both parties intend to fashion out policies to help Ghana maximize gains from Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
