The Vice President of the Republic, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has emphasized that if given the mandate to be Ghana’s next President, he will commit to a review of the 1992 Constitution.
According to the New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, not only will he review the Constitution but also touch on key aspects with the view of amending provisions such as the ex-gratia, the rights of dual citizens, the powers of the President among others.
“I am committed to the process to amend the 1992 Constitution through extensive public consultation with key emphasis on issues such as ex-gratia, the rights of dual citizens, election of MMDCEs to deepen decentralization and empowering institutions while reducing the power of the President”, he pledged.
“The current constitution was designed mainly for political stability and it has achieved that. We need to amend it with the help of Parliament to align it more for national development”, Dr. Bawumia made these remarks when addressing the Ghanaian public at the Kofi Ohene Konadu Auditorium at the University of Professional Studies, Accra, on Wednesday, February 7, 2024.
