MPs must focus on constituency development at all times

The Member of Parliament for the Asuogyaman Constituency,  Thomas Ampem Nyarko, has urged his parliamentary colleagues to pursue the implementation of developmental projects in their constituencies all year round, and not only election periods.

Mr Nyarko said this during an engagement at Akosombo with Mr. Dennis Agyei Boateng, National President of Unilime Foundation, a non-governmental organisation.

NPP Flagbearer: I support calls for “One man, one vote” – Dr Alidu Seidu

Dr Alidu Seidu, Senior Lecturer, Political Science Department, University of Ghana, says he supports Professor Ransford Gyampo’s call for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to adopt a "One-Man, One-Vote" principle in selecting its flagbearer for the 2024 presidential elections. He said that principle would mean that the person who emerged as the flagbearer of the Party was somebody the majority of the Party’s supporters had trust and confidence in. Dr Seidu said that would translate into massive votes by supporters of the Party for the candidate in the national election. “If everybody within the Party has the means to vote for that particular person that they think can lead the Party and is competent enough to do that, then it translates into continuous loyalty and voting capital ...
