Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, has launched the Democracy Cup, a historic initiative marking three decades of parliamentary democracy in Ghana.

In his keynote address, Speaker Bagbin celebrated the journey of Ghana’s parliament, highlighting its role in promoting democracy, accountability and unity, while overcoming challenges.

He emphasized that the significance of the Democracy Cup will bridge the gap between Parliament and the people and enhances a collective celebration of Ghana’s democracy.

The Democracy Cup will feature a football match between Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak. This is to symbolize unity and sportsmanship ahead of the December elections.

Speaker Bagbin further urged the Electoral Commission to ensure a free, fair, and credible electoral process and used the occasion to invite everyone to attend the match and support the teams.
