Ghana- 4th Annual NPOA Progress Report (2009)

This Report is the Fourth Bi-Annual Progress report submitted by the National African Peer Review Mechanism - Governing Council (NAPRM-GC) to the APR Panel. The Report covers the period January – June 2009 and provides an overview of Ghana's progress in implementing the National Programme of Action. The period under review witnessed a smooth transition of power from one democratically elected government to another democratically elected government. Civil society organizations continued to play a vital role in the election process. CSOs such as the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), Institute of Democratic Governance (IDEG) were actively involved in the electoral process. Indeed, IEA organized the presidential and vice-presidential debates which brought together the Presidential-aspirants of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) and the Peoples National Convention (PNC) to sell their manifestoes to the populace. Apart from the numerous international observers who trooped to the country, local CSOs such as IDEG, CODEO and CDD also undertook electioneering monitoring, adding to the credibility of the whole process.
