Ashaiman MP urges public to take advantage of Article 21(f) of 1992 Constitution
Ernest Henry Norgbey, the member of parliament representing the Ashaiman Constituency, has urged the populace to use the constitutional rights that are protected by Article 21(f) of Ghana’s 1992 constitution.
The two-term congressman claimed that in order to encourage transparency in government, the constitution should include such a clause.
He suggested that well-intentioned Ghanaians should exercise their right without waiting for rumors of corruption or unofficial information about a prominent figure or institution.
He continued by saying that this right might be used at any time.
According to Article 21(f), everyone has the right to information, subject to the restrictions and regulations required by a democratic society.
Prior to the 2020 elections, the MP was one of the first to use this right by requesting specific information from the Election Commission about procurement procedures.
For more information, he advised Ghanaians to study the entirety of Ernest Norgbey v. Electoral Commission.
