Ghana the brightest star of multi-party democracy in the sub-region will go to the polls on Monday, Dec 7 with what experts perceived as a close contest between the incumbent and the former president of the West Africa country.
In this regard, all political parties and independent candidates will round up their campaign rallies to pave way for electorates to prepare to vote on Monday, December 7, 2020.
The political parties are now in the home stretch as they go all out to convince electorates to vote for them.
There will be walks, rallies, door-to-door campaigns as well as other campaign strategies put to test in order to win votes.
The two main political parties, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) were expected to end their campaigns yesterday.
The final stretch of the campaign is aimed at soliciting support for their parties and also explain their policies and campaign promises to the electorates.
