Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye has commended the European Union for its role in Ghana’s democratic elections conducted over the years.

According to the Speaker Ghana would continue to appreciate the help EU gives with its foreign observers during elections and helping to maintain credible elections.

“We have systematically come to this level and we look up to working together helping deepen our democracy and not only for the economic help, we really like our association with you”.

Again we should be able as Africans to tell countries that do not follow democratic principles that, they cannot join the African Union (AU) as we have with the European Union (EU) in its formative stages.

This was done to maintain high standard for the organization, otherwise it would have become a club of, “you scratch my back and I scratch your back”

Speaker of Parliament made this remarks when the new Ambassador of EU to Ghana Diana Acconcia, head of political section Paolo Salvia, Protocol and Communication Officer Widad Quaye called on him
Also the practice where some African countries have a fix term of office yet leaders change the constitution to favour them to run for more terms is being changed as the practice was giving Africa a bad image.
