Electoral Commission of Ghana eliminates 17 political parties from Register

This comes after the commission reviewed the offices of registered political parties across the provinces during May and June 2022.

Following the exercise, the EC invoked Section 15 (3) (c) of the Political Parties Act of 2000, Act 574, which requires it to terminate the registration of Political Parties that lack National and Regional offices.
