The project took place regarding the legal council elections at the end of 2010, which was a year full of football, but also with elections in Ghana. The main goal of the project “Soccer for democracy” was to sensitise the candidates for their role regarding the local democracy system. The candidates were referred to their rights and duties. The main focus of the project was to voice the “guard dog” function of the citizens. Moreover the project wanted to empower the local people to call the electoral delegates to account for their actions. Furthermore the habit to use money as a bait for a good outcome of election should be denunciated. In all the project was fighting the habit to dispute local elections with party political topics.
