Independent candidates cannot survive post-election
A lecturer at the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at KNUST, Dr. Emmanuel De-Graft says independent parliamentary candidates cannot maintain autonomy post-election. Speaking to Samson Lardy Anyenini on Newsfile, Dr De-Graft stated that independent candidates are unable to avoid a political stance due to procedures in parliament. "The structure of parliament prevents them from being independent. They cannot survive as independent parliamentary candidates because they work for a political party."
