Lawyer John Agbotey has said that Chapter 5 of the 1992 constitution has the headline which states the directive principles of state policies.
Speaking to C.O Sly on the Eboboba morning show, he said the Chapter 5 of the 1992 constitution is a general guide to leadership, and so in drafting manifestos, it must fall within the confines and pace of Chapter 5 of the 1992 constitution.
“This makes it easier for political parties in drafting their manifestos because it covers the economy, interest of the nation and human rights which must be considered before drafting a political manifesto”.
He said the NPP manifesto is a solid document which entails rich content with 116 pages and contains three main thematic areas which they began with telling Ghanaians about where they started from when they took over from the NDC, secondly what the NPP did when they willed power from the NDC and what they are currently doing, finally, what the NPP will be doing when they assume a seat in the 2020 elections.
He finally urged Ghanaians to get a copy of the NPP’s manifesto in order to differentiate between lies, propaganda, and the truth.
