Abstract:The Fourth Republic of Ghana, inaugurated in 1992, marked the transition from a long period of military rule and dictatorship to democracy and has witnessed a historic transfer of power from one democratically elected government to another. The article takes a historical view of Ghana's transition to multiparty democracy from 1990 to 2004, discussing the prelude to multiparty rule, the process of constitution-making initiated by the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) government in 1990, culminating in the constitutional referendum of 28 April 1992, the lifting of the ban on political parties on 18 May 1992, successive presidential and parliamentary elections (1992, 1996, 2000), and the institution of the National Reconciliation Commission.
