The Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) has urged Ghanaians to keep the 1992 Constitution as the foundation of the country’s democracy and decent administration.

To commemorate this year’s Constitution Day, the LPG issued a statement signed and issued by its General Secretary, Jerry Owusu Appauh, in which it stated that the 1992 Constitution has the vision of building a fair and equitable society in which every citizen has the opportunity to live a long, productive, and meaningful life.

According to the party, the Constitution was established to defend the basic rights of all people, regardless of age, and to enable them to participate actively in national progress.

This aim, it stated, constituted the foundation of governmental policy directives and ideals.

“It is based on the aspirations of this constitution that we of the Liberal Party of Ghana want the people of Ghana to come to terms with our current realities and have faith in us as we go into the 2024 elections and vote massively for that change that will bring hope to the many who are hopeless and helpless, with the many challenges we face as a nation now,” it said.

“Ghanaians have the opportunity to, once again, demonstrate to the world that our democracy, and for that matter our constitution, is what will bring us the prosperity we deserve as a people,” the party stated.

“Ghana’s 1992 constitution that established the Fourth Republic provided a basic charter for a republican democratic government.

It asserts Ghana to be a unitary republic with the Ghanaian people as sovereign.

Intended to prevent future coups, dictatorial government and one-party states, it is designed to establish the concept of power-sharing,” it said.

“The current constitution reflects lessons learned from the abrogated constitutions of 1957, 1960, 1969 and 1979, and incorporates provisions and institutions drawn from British and American constitutional models.

The Constitution calls for a system of checks and balances, with power shared between a president, a unicameral parliament, a council of state and an independent judiciary,” it stated further.
