Development: Ghana as Model

3 out of 4 Ghanaians are satisfied with the quality of their country in terms of progress in political voice, and the provision of health and education—enviable proof that a young democracy can deliver. Challenges and limitations remain, however.

“The nature of the political system remains extremely centralised—including very strong presidential formal powers—and this makes key mechanisms of accountability (especially parliament) very weak. There is still clientelism and corruption,” writes Alina Rocha Menocal, senior research fellow at the Developmental Leadership Program, University of Birmingham.
