The latest Ghana news on politics is that the country’s parliament has been dissolved ahead of December 7 elections. This follows a ruling by the country’s Supreme Court which found that the current parliament had been illegally constituted. The court ordered that new elections be held within 60 days.
The ruling comes as a blow to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), which had hoped to retain its majority in parliament. It also means that there will be no sitting parliament during the election period, raising concerns about potential instability.
Ghana has a long history of peaceful transfers of power and democratic elections, and it is hoped that this will continue despite the recent court ruling. The main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said that it will participate in the upcoming elections and called on all political parties to do likewise.
