An entrepreneur, Kwabena Owusu Adjei has stated on Joy Fm's Super morning show that it is rational for a voter to vote for a candidate who comes from his own ethnic group.
The panelist believes the big influencing factors for voting behavior may include issues and money, a vote on tribal lines should not be condemned as narrow-minded.
“I don’t think it is bad that people want the people that represent them, to be from where they are from. That is not necessarily a bad thing”
“It is human nature that you always want the person to represent you to look like you be like you talk like you”.
Demographically, a political party needs to have an ethnic base to be considered viable during elections.
