Independent Presidential Prospect, Carl Ebo Morgan states if elected into business, he will see to it that the structure is reviewed to make sure that the power of the president is minimal.
This is his alternative to bringing an conclusion to the ‘family and friends’ style of authorities.
Mr. Morgan was speaking at the Presidential Debate organised for Unbiased Candidates by IMANI Africa and JoyNews at the University of Experienced Scientific studies in Accra.
He claimed: “I am of the view that the 1992 constitution has supplied so significantly power to the president. He appoints tons of persons. And in a natural way when you have this sort of a electric power, you will like to carry your closest loved ones. The temptation is huge.
“When I’m president, I’m likely to overview the structure, expunge the indemnity clauses and these goods that we are chatting about.”
He extra that to limit the President’s powers of appointment, he will introduce the semi-presidential technique, where the President will have to appoint a Prime Minister to guy the affairs of government.
“I’ll propose that we have a president who appoints a primary minister to operate a governing administration,” he reported. “All above the area that is what we know. In the French speaking countries all around us we have that. So the power of the president will be limited to some extent.”
Carl Ebo Morgan stated he will also be certain that appointments are based mostly on benefit, not blood ties and associations.
“So when that is accomplished you make positive you bring people of superior caliber. Meritocracy need to be the purchase of the working day,” he reported.
