A survey conducted by the political science department of the University of Ghana has showed that most lawmakers may lose their seats in Parliament after the 2020 elections.
The reason for their exits, YEN.com.gh has learnt, is because of failed promises to voters after they won their seats.
Another reason for the possible losses, it has been gathered, is their failure to visit their constituencies.
The research was conducted in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and revealed that 49.5% of Ghanaians would not vote for the incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs).
However, 42.6% indicated their willingness to vote for their sitting MPs.
Per a report by atinkaonline.com, the study was conducted on the 275 constituencies by questioning 100 persons from each of the constituencies. 27,500 people were interviewed in all.
The findings also showed that New Patriotic Party MPs have not been involved in disseminating information about government’s flagship programmes such as the One District One Factory and One Village One Dam.
YEN.com.gh has learnt that some of the promises promised and fulfilled were the building of hospitals, road construction, employment, provision of water, provision of electricity, completion of uncompleted projects and the increase the prices of farm produce.
