Electoral commission steps up preparation for elections
The electoral commission of Ghana has dismissed local media reports that the electoral body is not fully prepared to organize the anticipated November 7 presidential, parliamentary and local elections.
Some parliamentarians expressed concern that the electoral commission might not be ready to administer the polls on November 7 following meetings with residents of their constituencies and other election stakeholders.
But Eric Dzakpasu, the spokesman for the electoral commission, says the electoral body is implementing measures to ensure it is prepared to organize the polls.
“The Electoral Commission of Ghana has been preparing feverishly to have the election conducted on the 7th of November. All our activities are geared towards having the election on the 7th of November so if parliament passes the bill, we are very confident that we will be able to conduct the election on the 7th of November,” said Dzakpasu.
