Pollster Ben Ephson has said Assin Central lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong who recently announced his decision to contest for the flagbearer position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has an advantage over Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen who also has interest in becoming the torch bearer for the governing party.
In the view of Mr Ephson, Kennedy Agyapong, a businessman, is popular in the party more than Mr Kyerematen.
Speaking on the New Day show on TV3 with Berla Mundi on Tuesday May 31, Ben Ephson who is also Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch said “I think that Ken is very popularly in the party, he has entered [the race]relatively late but but I think Kennedy has an advantage that Alan doesn’t have.
“We are talking about election of a flagbearer by people within the party. If Alan had gone into Parliament in 2007, like Kennedy has gone for his sixth term, Alan would have given Bawumia a hell of race. Mind you, Bawumia after losing as running mate in 2007 and 2012 still worked in the party. Kennedy is contesting and the people out there who will also vote will be people within the party.”
