Vote-buying weakens democracy - V. L. K. Djokoto

V. L. K. Djokoto has very clear ideas about what it takes to improve democracy in Ghana.

In a post on his Facebook wall, Mr Djokoto said “The culture of vote-buying is deeply entrenched in mainstream politics and has trickled into other organisations too. It's about time we introduced regulations to prevent this from undermining merit. A proven track-record and progressive ideas should be the basis on which people are elected to public office.
