Ghana Political parties must be allowed to replace MPs in case of death.

 
National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia is proposing political parties be allowed to appoint representatives to constituencies where they lose sitting Members of Parliament (MP) through death.

“If we can have a system where, when a party loses a member that party is allowed to get a replacement it may be good,” he said.

Under the current system, the Electoral Commission (EC) organizes by-election in a constituency when the sitting MP dies and according to the NDC, this has a toll on the nation’s finances.

According to Mr. Nketia, who spoke to Citi News, Ghana could adopt the Denmark model which is far less expensive and workable although people must be allowed to exercise their franchise saying, “I am getting convinced that if we can adopt their system it will be better,” he said.

He further explained that although by-election are “indicators of how well a government is performing, by giving parties a barometer to check the performance of government, the cost and attendance problem over-weighs the advantages of holding by-election.”
