The UNDP Technical Advisor to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae, says the country’s governance system has to be redesigned and structured to create space for minority parties to operate.

He said Ghana is gradually drifting to becoming a two party state, which is inimical to the country’s democratic growth, adding “the subject of political party’s funding needs to be revisited’’.

Dr. Oduro Osae was contributing to the “We the People”, a monthly local governance programme organised by the Ghana Journalists Association, GJA, in partnership with the STAR –GHANA Foundation.

The programme seeks to raise citizen’s awareness on local governance issues. He said the revised governance structure must empower and encourage minority parties to form alliances which would enable them to participate more effectively in the governance process.
