IMANI, Other leading Ghana’s CSOs Offer to Help IMF and Government Negotiate a Better IMF Deal

Statement read by Mr. Joe Winful at the press launch of the Ghana Civil Society Platform on the IMF bailout at the Press Centre in Accra.

“It must be a matter of grave concern to all Ghanaians that the current negotiations are going on without any prior conversation with the people of Ghana represented by civil society and other non-state actors. Not even our representatives in Parliament have been consulted prior to the negotiations to share with the government and the negotiators their views on the key issues to be negotiated. And yet there would be no chance for Parliament to debate and make any changes to the agreement once it is agreed between GOG and the Fund. Clearly the inclusion of 2 or 4 members of the Finance Committee from both sides of the divide on the negotiating team would have been useful.”
