The Member of Parliament (MP) for Pru Constituency Dr Kwabena Donkor has indicated that you do not win any election based on the amount of money you pump into campaign activities.

He compared the budget of the then opposition NPP to the governing NDC and said the latter’s budget was nowhere close to the former.

“In the last elections, we outspent the NPP if it was a matter of resources…NPP could not come anywhere near us,” yet the NDC lost in the 2016 election.

Dr Kwabena Donkor said this at a town hall meeting with the youth wing of the Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN) of the University of Education, Winneba, Kumasi Campus.

“Money does not win elections…big rallies do not also win elections,” he added.

He said the NDC should have learnt from the 2008 experience of the NPP.

“In 2008, if you saw NPP’s rallies and all the musicians after them…unfortunately we failed to learn. In 2016, we repeated the same mistakes with big rallies and musicians.”

“You do not do same things and expect different outcomes,” he pointed out

He said the party lost because they failed to pay attention to the grassroots and branches of the party.

“We lost 2016 simply because our branches were weak….we did not pay enough attention to party structures especially the branches,” he noted.
