Ghana: Commonwealth Observer Group Bemoans Low Number of Women in Politics

The Commonwealth Observer Group has expressed concern about the low number of women contesting this year's general election in Ghana.

The group is in the country at the invitation of the Electoral Commission to observe Ghana's 6th elections since returning to constitutional rule for the fourth time in 1992.

"You have few women representation, over 1,000 people contesting, you have only a few women. So encourage more women to come forward and stand for elections and serve their people in those important areas," the Chairperson of the Commonwealth Observer Group, Dr Bethuel Pakalitha Mosisili has said.
