Ghana Election 2020: IMANI Ghana, led by Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has on Monday 14 December, described the formation of next parliament as God sent.
Speaking to Ghana News Agency, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe said “This Parliament and the way it is constructed from the elections, actually, it is God sent, and I think we are beginning to see the real governance, where government (the executive) will no longer have its way in Parliament.
Where you will not see bills that are frightening being given the nod at the frightening speed of lightening.”
By the Electoral Commission (EC) certified parliamentary results, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) won 137 legislative seats, while the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) had 136, with one independent and one seat yet to be decided at Sene West Constituency in the Bono East Region.

Mr. Franklin Cudjoe according to his conviction of the composition of the new parliament, he said there would be proper conversations and ministers would have to be present in Parliament and not send representatives to defend ideas or defend position.
“And so, I think this Parliament, however the permutation, even if there is three or four majoritarian from either party, you could still see that the Parliament is the one that is structurally designed to be effective, and to be an effective check on the executive.”
According to him, Ghanaians have hope in this elected parliament to possibly work for the good of the country and not for the good of political party and it members.
