The time is right for public financing of political parties in the country, a Senior Research Fellow of the Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG), Mr. Kwesi Jonah, has stated.
That, he explained, would help strengthen smaller parties and deepen the democratic credentials of the country.
In an interview with the Daily Graphic in Accra Thursday, Mr. Jonah said the two dominant political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) remained the only parties that won elections because the two parties had the financial muscle to organise properly and out-perform the smaller ones.
“What has kept some of the smaller parties down over the years is lack of resources, and they are unable to compete on a level playing field, so I believe the time has come to encourage public financing of political parties because money is controlling everything and the smaller parties are suffering,” he said.
