Findings from a Survey conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, indicate that Ghanaians are moving from partisan to issue based politics.

As a result, majority of Ghanaians say they will cast their votes based on relevant policies presented in the various manifestos.

A Senior Lecturer at the Department and Lead Researcher of the Survey, Alex Kaakyire Duku Frempong, who presented the research findings, urged Political Parties to brace themselves up and craft feasible campaign messages and polices for the masses.

On whether or not the December election, would be peaceful, the Survey revealed that about 86% of respondents were positive on that. To maintain peace and order come December, Mr. Frempong said most respondents indicated they have more confidence in the military than any other group.

The Survey which sampled 12,000 respondents nationwide, predicted a 51.7% victory for the NPP, followed by the NDC with 40.4% and the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) with 1.4% .

Meanwhile, Director, Legon Center for International Affairs and Diplomacy Professor Emmanuel Debrah says it is unacceptable for the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) to politicize the research findings of the University.

His comments follow claims by the Alliance that the survey conducted by the Political Science Department is bias and fake.

He rather encouraged Political Parties to mobilize and establish themselves to make an impact on the masses.
