Ghanaians split on impact of current ‘hung’ Parliament, Afrobarometer survey shows

AB ghana-hung-parliament-2022

Almost half of Ghanaians say the country’s “hung” Parliament has made members of Parliament (MPs) more effective at scrutinizing government spending, the recent Afrobarometer survey indicates.

But fewer see gains in MP effectiveness at passing laws or building consensus among political parties in the current Parliament, which for the first time is equally divided between the ruling NPP and the opposition NDC.

Survey findings show strong public support for the central role of MPs in making laws and holding the president accountable. But few citizens think MPs listen to what their constituents say, and most give their elected representatives a negative performance review.
