Bishop of Accra: Ghana Works for Democracy

(01 May 08 - RV) In Ghana, the campaign is under way for their December elections.  The West African country has had a multi-party democracy since a new constitution was established in 1992. 

Although all the political campaigns since then have been relatively peaceful, all the leading political parties last week called for their followers to not engage in activities which could lead to violence.

The Archbishop of the capital Accra, Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle, says that the entire nation is working together to make democracy work in the country, and it can serve as an example to the rest of the continent. RealAudioMP3
