Let’s watch influence of money on our elections
The just-ended parliamentary primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) across the country have, once again, raised the issue of money and its effects on our democracy. There is a link between money and success in elections, and this is globally acknowledged and there is nothing fundamentally wrong with it, provided the money was raised through legitimate means and properly accounted for. But when financial resources become the determining factor for inclusion and exclusion in candidate selection in maturing democracies like Ghana, we should be worried.
