IMANIFesto is a framework that assesses political parties’ manifestos using a coding system comprised of quantitative indicators. It analyses the status of implementation of pledges contained in the manifesto of the ruling party, the feasibility of manifestos presented by political parties prior to elections and the impact of their promises on the livelihood of the citizenry.
Policy makers, political actors and development actors across Africa, particularly in Ghana, Benin and Nigeria, have responded to IMANIFesto in various ways. Presidential candidates both in Ghana and Benin have contacted us for policy advice following the release of our IMANIFesto publications.
