I am going to vote NO to political parties sponsoring candidates for elections at the local government level in Ghana. This is because there is an urgent need for constitutional, legislative and administrative reforms in the governance architecture of the country. Such reforms are necessary to strengthen the checks and balances that will make the three arms of government, especially the executive, and also the civil, local, and public servants transparent and accountable to the citizens. There is also the need to strengthen and enforce the Political Parties Act, 2000 (Act 574) that regulates the formation and operation of political parties so as to bring sanity and decorum to our multiparty democracy. I am going to vote NO to political parties sponsoring candidates for elections at the local government level in Ghana.
