Pollster, Benjamin Emmanuel Ephson popularly known in media circles as Ben Ephson, has called on political parties to concentrate on the votes of the youth if they seek to be crowned winners of the 2020 election.
Speaking on Angel FM’s Anopa Bofo morning show, he advised that it would be prudent for the political parties to concentrate on the figures from the voters registration exercise particularly those from the youth within the age range of 18 and 19 years.
He stated that based on the figures from the ongoing registration exercise 7.7 percent out of 11.62 million registered voters are attained the age of 18 and 19 years as at July 23, 2020.
“That means registered voters at the age of 18 and 19 represents 4.1 percent (488, 851 voters) and 3.6 percent (419, 530 voters) respectively. The strategy is that, these are some of the things political parties should take notice of”, he said.
He was of the opinion that the country would not be conducting voter registration exercise by 2024 insisting that “I think by 2024 these voter registration exercise would be cancelled”
