Political Shift in South Africa: Can Ghana Expect a Similar Upset?

In a historic turn of events, South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), has lost its majority in the national election, garnering only 40.18% of the vote. This significant shift in the country’s political landscape marks the end of the ANC’s 30-year dominance. The party’s decline is attributed to various factors, including high unemployment, economic instability, corruption, and poor public service delivery.

In Ghana, a similar political upheaval may be brewing. Alan Kyerematen, a former Minister for Trade and Industry, has broken away from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and formed the “Movement for Change”. In the upcoming general elections, Alan’s movement is poised to challenge the New Patriotic Party ( NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), which have dominated Ghana’s political landscape since the fourth republic.

As Ghana prepares for its elections, the question on everyone’s mind is whether the country will experience a similar political shift as seen in South Africa. Can Alan’s Movement for Change gain enough traction to upset the traditional dominance of the NPP and NDC?
