The Center for Democratic Development, CDD-Ghana is calling on the Minister of Justice and Attorney General as required by Section 10 of the Vigilantism and Related Offences Act, 2019 (Act 999), to as a matter of urgency, introduce a legislative instrument that will provide the necessary regulations to give effect to Act 999.

This formed part of Policy Recommendations in a survey conducted titled, “Electoral Violence and Political Vigilantism in Ghana: Evidence from Hotspots”.

Mawusi Dumenu, a Research Analyst with CDD-Ghana told GBC’s Rebecca Ekpe in an interview that respondents also called for more education on the new bill to ensure its functionality, especially with the general elections in sight.

On other recommendations from the CDD Vigilantism survey, CDD says government should avoid shielding wrongdoers within its rank and file to promote trust and integrity.

Also, institutions such as the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) should be empowered to function as mandated by the Constitution.
