Vice presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party, Eva Lokko, states that positions on the ballot sheet means nothing to her party.
Speaking after the allocation of positions to the aspiring parties, Ms Lokko claims bettering the lives of Ghanaians is more important.
“The number on the ballot paper means nothing,” Lokko points out.
“The most important thing is helping better the conditions of the people.”
Ms Lokko represented Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom at the offices of the Electoral Commission in balloting for the position.
PPP will be Number Four on the ballot paper.
For the New Patriotic Party, not picking Number One is a mark of good fortunes for the party’s presidential candidate in the elections.
“I picked Number One in 2008 and we lost,” says Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, the Chairman of NPP, adding that they won the 2000 elections when their candidate was bottom of the ballot paper.
The General Secretary of National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, believes the number on the paper for his party will translate into a ‘one-touch’ victory for John Dramani Mahama, the party’s presidential candidate.
