Abstract

This study seeks to establish the composition of one key political institution (the office of Member of Parliament of Ghana-MPG) in one African country (Ghana) in terms of both the formal rules and the informal norms, and to explore the relationship between the composition of the institution and what the office holders provide in terms of public, collective, club, and private goods.
