With group of people who came together with the same political goals for ruling a nation, you can consider such a group as political party.
Political parties in Ghana are many but only few are heard and known in the eyes of Ghanaians. Political parties are working with democracy to allow citizens to choose the presidential and parliamentary candidate they want.
From the time Ghana gained its freedom from the British, Ghanaians were given the privilege to do what every they want pleasing them — as far as it does not go against the rules and regulations set and the Laws of Ghana.
With this, many Ghanaian politicians formed their own political parties, despite the one founded by Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah — which is Conventional People’s Party.
Many Ghanaians are wondering if political parties in Ghana are only that of what we used to see and hear their names in elections such as; National Democratic Congress (NDC), New Patriotic Party (NPP), Conventional People’s Party (CPP), Progressive People’s Party (PPP) and Ghana Union Movement (GUM).
Perhaps, these are not the only political parties that are found in Ghana — as we have several political parties operating in Ghana. Be it that you are a political science student, or a normal person in Ghana, this information should be much important for you.

And Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah said, “At long last, the battle has ended! And thus, Ghana, your beloved country is free forever! And yet again, I want to take the opportunity to thank the people for this country; the youth, the farmers, the women who have so nobly fought and won the battle.”
Ghana is a country that practices a multi-party system, and that is why there are many political parties in the country. However, it seems to be only two political parties dominating over the Ghana election times. These political parties are: National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP). These are all the list of all the political parties in Ghana.
