This briefing paper intends to shed light on Ghanaian attitudes toward political accountability and assess the ordinary citizens’ role in this crucial part of the democratic process. In doing so, the paper draws from evidence from Round 5 of the Afrobarometer survey regarding five key aspects of political accountability – associational activity and local political participation; citizen engagement with the state; access to information; accountability and responsibility; and perceptions of corruption.
