The Ghana Post Election Intervention Project aims at promoting the culture of political accountability by strengthening the processes and institutions that lead to fulfillment of electoral promises and delivery of visible and impact driven dividends of democracy by elected leaders.
The Objectives of this project are:
Providing easy and accessible information on political promises and development plans of elected representatives to the public
To enhance media performance and redirect media engagements to development issues
To create citizens awareness on development issue
To make informed choices during elections
