List of political parties who EC might revoke license as political party

17 political parties across the country are in hot water for breaking the political parties act. The 17 parties, which also include the United Progressive Party (UPP) and the United Front Party (UFP), have been alleged to have violated the aforesaid regulations, which require them to open national and regional offices throughout the nation.

The Electoral Commission of Ghana states that it has no choice but to invalidate the licences of these parties.

According to a statement, issued by the EC on Thursday, the parties did not adhere to the requirements of the Political Parties Act 2000.

The EC further stated that, it has reached this conclusion after conducting a thorough investigation of all registered political party offices across the country. That exercise showed that none of the 17 parties listed below have national or regional offices. 

The other parties are the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), National Reform Party (NRP), Reform Patriotic Democrats, Democratic People's Party, Every Ghanaian Living Everywhere (EGLE), New Vision Party (NVP), Ghana Democratic-Republican Party (GDRP), Ghana National Party (GNP), Yes People's Party (YPP), United Ghana Movement (UGM), and United Development System Party (UDSP), United Love Party (ULP), Power Unity Party (PUP), People's Action Party (PAP), and United Renaissance Party (URP).

The Commission has given the 17 parties up to Thursday, October 20, 2022, to give reasons and supporting documents as to why their licences should not be suspended.
