The Ghanaian parliamentary election was held on 29 December 1992. This were the first parliamentary elections since the 1979 election, 13 years earlier. Presidential elections were held earlier on 3 November 1992. Only 28.1% of the registered voters turned out for the parliamentary elections.[1] The preceding presidential election was considered to have been conducted in a free and fair manner by international observers. The opposition parties however claimed the election was fraudulent and boycotted this parliamentary election.[2]

The result was a victory for the National Democratic Congress, which won 189 of the 200 seats.[3]
