A statement issued and signed by a Research Analyst at CePRA, U. L. Mustapha said the poll, which was conducted in June, July, August and September 2022, placed William Atamudzi ahead of the four other Candidates eyeing the chairmanship slot for the region.

“Out of the 700 participants in the poll, 622 of the respondents were constituency executives, 78 were former government appointees, Former MMDCEs and founding fathers of the party across 25 out of the 33 constituencies in the Eastern Region,” the statement noted.

50%, representing 350 of the respondents said, the current regional vice chairman is their choice for the regional Chairmanship position.

“Other respondents noted that Mr William Kwame Atamudzi has the requisite acumen to lead the region better than the other aspirants”, the statement said.

Also among the reasons given were that, the man is very hardworking, a grassroot person, very visible and accessible, very resourceful, understands the party structures, very experienced and appeals to all factions in the party.

The statement also disclosed that the incumbent regional chairman Mr. John Owusu Amankrah (Jowak) placed second with 19% representing 133 of the 700 respondents.

CePRA however believes Jowak’s second position is still shaky and likely to dwindle in the elections due to his age and mobility challenges, a condition Party Footsoldiers have described as a recipe for disaster should he get the nod again for another term.

The remaining respondents were split between Kevor Mark-Oliver, a former Eastern Regional Secretary, Bismark Tawiah Boateng, a former Regional chairman and Basil Ahiable, one time regional chairman aspirant.

Mark Oliver Kevor pulled 77 votes, representing 11% of the respondents while Bismarck Tawiah Boateng pulled 70 votes, representing 10% of the participants while Basil Ahiable also pulled 70 votes representing 10% of the respondents.

It would be recalled that CePRA, in the run up to the GJA elections conducted a similar poll and predicted a win for Albert Kwabena Dwumfour, the current GJA President which came to pass.
