The University of Ghana research titled ‘A mid-term study on MPs: Emerging issues’ revealed that the supposed poor performance on the part of some MPs could create voter apathy among the electorates.
The report recommended that Parliamentarians should be circumspect with the kinds of promises they make during campaigns adding that their continuous absence from their constituency could affect their re-election bids.
