Election 2020: We are ready – EC

The Electoral Commission (EC) says it is fully ready to conduct the the December 7 elections.

The EC Chair, Jean Mensa who addressed the media on Sunday assured that all is set for the polls.

“As a Commission, you recognize that we are accountable to the citizens of Ghana and I am pleased to inform you that by the grace of God, we are fully ready to conduct successful, credible, fair, orderly, and peaceful elections tomorrow Monday, December 7, 2020,” Mrs Mensa said at the last Let The Citizen Know interaction on Sunday, December 6.

She said for the first time, electoral materials including ballot papers, boxes, indelible ink, thumbprint pads, among others, were sent to all 38,622 polling stations in record two-and-a-half weeks before elections.

“This early planning and distribution of our logistics has helped ease pressure on our officials and has allowed the Commission enough time to strategise well ahead of the elections.

“We believe this will improve the overall quality of the elections.”

She also assured that all those who will face challenges on election day will have the opportunity to call a center to be set up to assist in this regard.

The Commission remains confident that it will be able to declare the election results in 24 hours after polls close.
