No matter how well the Asantes do, the NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman has stated that he will continue to support his party.
He asserts that the NPP would continue to get support even if it is unable to fulfill its promise of development to the residents of the Ashanti Region.
Chairman Wontumi stated that the government’s decision to request a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will not have a negative impact on the party’s chances in the next elections.
By asserting that the government’s decision to seek a bailout from the IMF would not improve their chances in the Ashanti Region, where Asantes would still vote for the NPP, Chairman Wontumi shattered the opposition of the NDC’s bubble.
“NDC should forget 40% of votes in Ashanti Region, because with or without developments ‘we the Asantes will vote for NPP,” he said.
Election results show that the NPP’s heartland, where they receive the majority of presidential votes and legislative seats, is the Ashanti Region.
However, with the paradigm moving in favor of the NDC, recent election results show a significant fall in their numbers.
