Despite the active participation of a number of political parties and independent candidates in both the presidential and parliamentary elections in Ghana since 1992, two main political parties, the NDC and the NPP have dominated the fourth republic. Over the last two decades, there is an increasing decline of a third force in Ghana’s political system given the recent election outputs. Given that a competitive multiparty system is key for an effective democratic governance, we discuss in this epispde, the origin, consequences and how to break the political duopoly in Ghana.
