Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for West Africa and the Sahel, and Head of UNOWAS, Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas, says the UN has been having frequent consultations with Ghana’s Electoral Commission, EC to share ideas in the discharge of its duties.
He said there is a network of Electoral Commissions in West Africa, that meet and share ideas on best practices from their countries.
Speaking at a virtual roundtable with Business Executives and policy makers in Accra, Dr. Inb Chambas said the EC in Ghana, has the responsibility to ensure that all eligible voter’s are captured in the Voters Register.
However, in carrying out its mandate, the EC should ensure that all stakeholders are consulted.
The electoral commission of Ghana has turned deaf ears to people advising them to be mindful of their activities since Civil War in many African countries came as a result of the bias nature of the EC.
