Lessons to be learnt from the UK's electoral system

The winners of the recent UK's general elections have been confirmed and all parties have accepted the results, except two 'Akuffo Addos' of UK politics: George Galloway of The Respect Party and Nigel Farage of The UKIP who are contesting the results in Bradford Central Constituency and South Thanet Constituency respectively. 

MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES, WORKS AND HOUSING

 Government remains committed to pumping significant investment into the country’s utility companies to ensure the delivery of quality and reliable service. A lot has been said about the investments in the energy sector by way of expanding Generation capacity to 5000MW by 2016.

Disorganised and Divided Opposition is Not Fit For Purpose

 The role of the opposition in constitutionalising governance and promoting good governance is well supported by empirical evidence. However, there are exceptions to this rule, particularly when the opposition is disorganised and has unconstitutional habits. Yes, Hon. Fredy Blay has the right to convene an emergency meeting in the absence of NPP's national Chairman, Paul Afoko.

ALLOW THEM TO GIVE MEANING TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH

 I think is about time we take issues with issues raised by all these people commenting on the leadership style of the president His Excellency John Dramani Mahama. 

The Significance of UK's Political Dynamics to Politics in Ghana

 The opinion polls for next Thursday's UK general elections are indicating a hung parliament, in other words no party can win clear majority to form a government on its own. The Scottish National party(SNP) had made it clear they will never enter into any form of alliance or coalition with the Conservative party because of their ideological differences, but they will consider entering into alliance or collaboration with the Labour Party,  if the terms are good.

A FEW THINGS YOU MUST KNOW WHILE POSITIONING YOURSELF TO TAKE UP LEADERSHIP POSITION

 It is inherent to note that schools of thoughts hold strong views on how leaders emerge. While some are of the view that leaders are born, others think leaders are made. 

LESSON FROM XENOPHOBIC ATTACK IN SOUTH AFRICA: YOU CANNOT RIDE ON TRIBAL POLITICS TO POWER

 We must all be worried when it appears some politicians are unrepentant in making unreasoned and deadly political comments that put our lives in great danger. Despite the total condemnation of Osafo Marfo's tribal comments, Nana Akufo Addo has again endorsed such uncivilised comment.

INCORRENCE AT THE TOP OF THE NPP ABOUT 'PROJECT GHANA' PORTEND CHAOS.

 The taped tribally biased comments of Osarfo Marfo, former Minster of Finance and Sports under President Kufuor generated a level of public response that will go down as one of a few.

Affirmative Action Fiasco

 Akufo-Addo Not A Leader

So Akuffo Addo could not apply breaks but overshot the runway?

 Just last Monday the 13th of April, 2015 I wrote a piece under the heading "Can president Mahama's hands be tied?". In that piece, I raised issues with the calls on the president on the need to widely consult before appointing a new chairman for the Electoral Commission.

MY LITTLE INPUT AS BAWUMIA IS OUT ON THE RESTORATION OF TEACHER TRAINEE ALLOWANCES. JUST SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES

 I went to town soliciting for authentic information that would guarantee me the opportunity to explain issues better for the understanding of all. It might not be a pleasant piece, but I think it is worth reading just so we can all argue on the content.

IMF, A GENUINE PARTNER OR AN EXPLOITER: LET US WORK TOGETHER TO WEAN GHANA OUT OF IT

For decades, Ghana has been entangled in the complex IMF and other western financial institution's web that it has very little to write home about.

CAN PRESIDENT MAHAMA'S HANDS BE TIED?

 I have pondered many times and have nearly given up on writing this piece. I have really wanted to push the thoughts aside as they came. But it appears I have no other option than to sit and put this together.

Owusu Bempa is divisive and amateurish politically: Mbalba

Nana Akuffo Addo's All Die Be Die is Back

 My people(Dagombas) have a proverb: If Market day is going to be a success , yo will start seeing the signs in the morning. The unabated confusion in the NPP's camp: confusion over their affirmative action policy,who is leading their campaign, attempts by some regional executive members to sideline the chairman and Gen. Sec just to mention but few are indicators that the NPP is not ready for government and I think my fellow country men and women are discerning enough.

Politics and Civil Service of Ghana: A challenge to the development agenda

 Ghana has made significant progress since independence in many areas and has been hailed by many observers across the world when it comes come to political stability, freedom of speech, and respect for human right among others. At independence Ghana's population stood around 5.6 million.

A LOOK AT THE DRUG MENACE, ANGLES AND ALL YOU NEED TO CONSIDER

 "All things work together for good" is a popular saying that is employed by those who think they have lost an opportunity earlier but who are blessed later for having waited for the right day.
