The lifting of the ban on celebration politics in the nation on May perchance 18, 1992 resulted in multi-celebration elections that birthed the nation’s Fourth Republic.

The presidential election became once held on November 3, that yr and the parliamentary elections nearly two months later on December 29.

Going by the four-yr electoral cycle adhered to in the nation, there had been eight frequent elections in the Four Republic, won by handiest the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Contemporary Patriotic Occasion (NPP) in a carve up manner.

Because the records repeat the NDC won the 1992 and 1996 and dominated two phrases consecu­tively, ending their eight-yr rule in the 2000 electoral defeat to the NPP, which also had two-period of time eight-yr rule from 2001 to 2009 for losing to the NDC in the 2008 frequent election.

Ghana is at the verge of constructing unheard of electoral history irrespective of who wins the 2024 frequent election.

The ruling NPP desires to ‘rupture the eight’ to proceed their rule seamlessly, while the NDC desires to include light President John Dramani Ma­hama succor to vitality for four years to if truth be told include a memoir of two-period of time eight-yr rule because it has been for Presidents Jerry John Rawlings (1993 to 2001); John Agyekum Kufuor (2001 – 2009); and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo (2017 and put a question to­ed to recede January 7, 2025).

If the Alliance for Revolu­tionary Switch is ready to elect an independent President, that shall be “gigantic unheard of” on yarn of it would include introduced on a paradigm shift in the election of presidents in the nation’s political history.
