A public forum on the fundamental indicators of a vibrant democracy

Release, Aug 26, Ghanadot - The ability of a country to hold successive successful elections deemed free and fair by all stakeholders, is one of the fundamental indicators of a vibrant democracy. Ghana has relatively done better than her peers on the continent with the successful execution of four general elections since the commencement of the fourth Republic in 1992.

Last year, Ghana proved to the world that the practice of electoral democracy is rooted in our politics when after the most contentious election in its recent history, the losing party took the unprecedented step of seeking legal redress from the Supreme Court. Hence from February to August 2013, the country witnessed an exhaustive and tensed legal contest that culminated in a marginal verdict for the incumbent on 29th August 2013.
