Democracy has been strengthened in diverse ways and we have seen Ghana’s democracy consolidated since it has satisfied the various notions of Scholars like Andreas Schedler and Samuel Huntington.
Schedler came up with some notions to explain what democratic consolidation (DC) is.
It helped to unite the Alliance and to focus the movement as a whole on the challenge of defending our electoral victories.
Immediately after the Congress, the Alliance achieved a landslide victory for the ANC in the 2004 elections.
Democracy also offers a political framework that supports nonviolent resolution of conflict and facilitates political dialogue, cohesion, stability, and development.
Basically, every assertion about democratic consolidation is built on democracy.
That is democracy is a means to achieve democratic consolidation.
In Cape Verde, the opposition, Movement for Democracy (Mp D), won landslide victory in the parliamentary election that was held in March, after almost fifteen years in the minority.
However, Ghana’s story is somewhat different from the foregoing narratives in important respects.
