How to lodge complaints against your MP

Image
There is no formal procedure for complaining if you are unsatisfied with the service you have received from your Member of Parliament. If you are not satisfied with the treatment you have received you have three courses of action available to you.

First you can take your complaint to the local party association. Although there may be no immediate sanction they can take, the choice of who is selected to represent the constituency in future elections rests with them. There should be a contact number and address in your local telephone directory. Alternatively, you can write to the party’s headquarters.

The other option is to write to the Chief Whip of the party to which your MP belongs. The address is:
[Name of Party]
Chief Whip’s Office
Parliament House
Accra

That office will deal with the complaint from there.
The Parliamentary Select Committee does not deal with a Member of Parliament’s decision on how to handle a constituent’s case or a Member’s views or opinions. The remit of the Commissioner is mainly concerned with breaches of the Code of Conduct and the registration and declaration of financial interests and benefits.
