POLITICS:EC boss wants limit for counstituencies
|Dr Afari Gyan|| |
The Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan says there is the need to put a cap on the number of constituencies created in the country.
Ghana currently has 230 constituencies and that number is expected to go up to 275 with the creation of 45 new constituencies.
The EC has been sued by some bodies for deciding to create new constituencies when the legality of the process adopted in creating new districts is being questioned in court.
But speaking on a political talk show ‘The Electoral Platform’ on GTV last night, the EC boss said it is necessary the country considers limiting the number of constituencies to avoid a potential chaos in the future.
“I believe that sincerely that at some stage we would have to put a cap on the membership of Parliament.
“Because as we saying, the numbers are literally snowballing and there are several reasons for it.
“When there is a cap and you have to redistribute then some places may lose constituencies” Dr. Afari Gyan said.
