A survey conducted by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) Ghana, has revealed that seven in 10 Ghanaians surveyed have cited the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as offering gifts in exchange for their votes ahead of the December 7 general elections.

According to highlights of the pre-election survey conducted by the governance think tank between September 28 and October 16, 2020, 74% of persons surveyed said they received gifts to vote for the governing party while the National Democratic Congress (NDC) followed with 43%.

While seven percent of respondents said they received gifts from one of the other opposition political parties, six percent said they got same from an Independent Candidate whereas 10 percent either refused to mention or they don’t know.

“Respondents said they were offered something, like money, food, or a gift during the 2020 elections campaign by political parties,” according to page 59 of the 76-paged document released on Friday, October 30, 2020.

Methodology

Every adult citizen had an equal chance of being selected for 2020 pre-election survey. A nationally representative sample of 2,400 adult citizens were randomly.

The sample is distributed across regions and urban-rural areas in proportion to their share in the national adult population.

Face-to-face interviews were conducted in the language of the respondent’s choice (a standard English questionnaire was translated into Twi, Ewe, Ga, Dagbani and
Dagaare).

Sample size of 2,400 yields a margin of error of +/-2 percentage points at a 95% confidence level.

Fieldwork (or data collection) for the 2020 pre-election survey was conducted from September 28 to October 16, 2020.
