This report examines four African states (Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Tanzania), and their membership in three multi-stakeholder initiatives: the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), and the Open Government Partnership (OGP).1 These four case studies offer valuable lessons. High-level political commitment is vital to sustained implementation of MSIs. International pressure can also increase (or diminish) political will. Some states lack the financial and human resources necessary to implement change, which adversely affects success of MSIs. Other trends among these cases are the lack of legitimacy in MSI reports due to unsubstantiated claims and poor drafting, the reporting burden of member states to multiple MSIs, and the weak implementation of supporting domestic legislation. As the case countries are party to multiple MSIs, there is a tendency towards overlapping and duplicating efforts, therefore emphasizing a need for better harmonization and synergy.

This paper is based on case studies from six West African countries (Republic of Benin, Cape Verde, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone). It points out key historical and material forces that helped frame and shape the electoral management and processes of these countries. These are: the state as a site for zero-sum politics; the progressive violation of the principle of isolation of administration from politics; and the combination of political and legal influences that help foster a culture of impunity.

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.
