Over the past 25 years, Ghana has emerged as an archetype of stability and good governance, heralded as a shining example for the rest of Africa to follow. Since the re-establishment of democracy by the Rawlings administration in 1993, Ghana can boast a highly participatory democracy, a strong and independent media, unimpeded rights to freedom of speech and association, civilian control of the military, and a strong rule of law.

Governance Attributes
Since the re-establishment of democracy in 1993, Ghana has developed a strong multi-party system, strictly adhered to its two-term presidential limit, conducted five free and fair elections, and peacefully transferred power between parties. Boasting a highly participatory democracy, a strong and independent media, unimpeded rights to freedom of speech and association, civilian control of the military, and a strong rule of law, Ghana has become the envy of other states in the sub-region.
