Imani Ghana and Joy News organized Yesterday what is said to be the first Presidential Debate for Independent and Minority Political Parties contesting in the December elections at the University of Professional Studies, Accra. Keynote address by Professor Charles Banor Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies stressed on the rights for democracy by giving minority parties and independent candidates the opportunities to present their messages and appeal to the concerns of the public and abandon old strategies of mediating between the two majority parties to set policies in pulling votes.
One of six independent candidates, a management and investment consultant Carl Morgan says the 1992 constitution has given much power to the Presidency to appoint and nominate his close allies to work in the government and as such if given the nod by Ghanaians in December, will review the constitution. He adds that to fashion out a government that cancels out nepotism, a Prime Minister should be appointed to run the government. He added that some existing ministries including the Ministry of Sanitation should be done away with because it does nothing but spends taxpayers monies. 
Mr.Kofi Koranteng, another independent candidate says he seeks to work with a tight government with just 10 ministries and that many ministries do not necessarily translate as an effective government. He says in choosing ministers, his government will have an office of Supervisory Jurisdiction to set strict guidelines called the Minimum Acceptable Requirement orientation for every ministry.
The six independent candidates contesting vying for Presidency are investment consultant Carl Ebo Morgan, entrepreneur and advocate Kofi Boateng, Samuel Ofori Ampofo is an engineer, Onipayede Ossom Teye, Marricke Kofi Gane, a chartered accountant and lecturer, and Dr.Thomas Asisey.
