The research offers a compelling prediction, suggesting that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is poised to clinch a resounding victory in the election scheduled for Saturday, August 26.
The research’s findings, extracted from a comprehensive survey that delved into the pulse of the NPP’s political landscape, paint a compelling picture of the potential outcome.
According to the report, meticulously crafted based on insights garnered from super delegates, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is anticipated to secure an impressive 72.6% of the votes.
The Vice President’s support is formidable, positioning him as the frontrunner in this critical election.
The survey further projected the hierarchy of the top 5 candidates, offering a glimpse into the likely composition of this select group.
Former Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen, is anticipated to clinch the second spot with a notable 7.7% of the votes. Kennedy Agyepong, known for his distinctive voice in the party, is poised to secure the third position with a projected 4.3% of the votes.

Undoubtedly, the political landscape is marked by the complexities of choice, and the survey reflects this. A significant 13% of the delegates expressed uncertainty, underlining the dynamic nature of this pivotal electoral process.
The respondents in the survey consisted of special delegates, a distinctive group comprising Members of Parliament, constituency chairmen, regional executives, national executives, and other influential figures within the NPP.
These key players were asked to identify the top 5 candidates poised for election within the NPP’s special electoral college. Additionally, they were asked to shed light on the criteria guiding their assessment of candidates vying for the coveted NPP flagbearer position.
The research report underscores that these assessments hinge on multifaceted criteria, reflecting both the candidates’ vision for the party and the country, as well as their demonstrated competence.
The convergence of these factors forms the basis upon which these influential party members are making their choices.
As the countdown to the NPP Super Delegates election continues, the findings of this research have cast a spotlight on Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s potential dominance in the race.
