Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has called for serious effort to be placed on strengthening Ghana’s democratic institutions if we have to sustain the country’s democracy.

He made this remarks on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 when Ghana’s Parliament launched its 30 year anniversary under the 4th Republican constitution which was on the theme – “30 years of Parliamentary Democracy in the Fourth Republic: Challenges and Prospects”, and is a year-long celebration.

In his speech the Speaker noted that, Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) will hold its annual conference here in Accra.

The tentative date is from 30th September to 6th October, 2023 and selecting Ghana to host this prestigious conference in itself is an honour. Beyond that, it is proof of how the world sees and rates our parliamentary democracy.

“We have indeed come very far as a democratic country. We should keep this in mind as we prepare to host the CPA in Accra. Let us put our A Game on display in whatever role we are assigned so that at the end of the day, the CPA conference in Accra will leave lasting memories on the minds of participants”.
