Political parties in Ghana over the years have mobilized the citizenry behind them in an attempt to capture political power in Ghana.
The 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana that came into effect on January 7, 1993, provides the basic charter for the country’s fourth attempt at a republican status.
The same day the country’s new constitution came into force, Jerry John Rawlings became the first president of the Fourth Republic. When he served his full 8 years, he was succeeded by John Agyekum Kufuor who also served his 8 years at the presidency. After him came Professor John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who defeated the then opposition leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.
After the untimely death of Professor John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills, his then Vice President – John Dramani Mahama succeeded him and subsequently won the 2012 election to continue till 2016 when he also lost to Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo.
