The NDC has vowed to win 50 percent of votes cast in the Eastern region.
The Eastern Regional Secretariat of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has vowed to snatch eight parliamentary seats from the NPP to add to the seven the party currently has.
This will bring to 15, the total number of seats the NDC will have in the region after the 2016 parliamentary elections.
The NDC currently has seven seats out of the 33 in the region whilst the NPP has 22.
Unsatisfied with this number, the NDC has embarked on a campaign to win more seats in the region come 2016. To this end, the Eastern Regional Secretariat of the party has mapped out a two-pronged strategy that groups all the parliamentary seats into two.
The seats the NDC seeks to snatch from the NPP include Asuogyaman, Ayensuano, Abetifi, Fanteakwa North, Abirim, Suhum, Akim Oda and Ofoase-Ayirebi.
