Per the results of the primaries, the Vice President will lead the ruling party into next year’s elections.

His major hurdle will be facing a former president, John Dramani Mahama, who was elected last December as the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The two have faced off on several political campaign platforms but in different capacities.

In the run-up to the 2008 elections, they were both running mates. Dr Bawumia was assisting Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo while Mr Mahama was assisting the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills, who won a third vote in Tain Constituency to win the elections.

In the 2012, 2016 and 2020 elections, Mr Mahama led the NDC while Dr Bawumia remained running mate to Mr Akufo-Addo.

Come 2024, the two will face off as the Presidential Candidates of the two major political parties in Ghana in what many have described as critical in the history of Ghana – a candidate seeking a return and one seeking to go a notch higher on the political ladder.
