As part of efforts to demystify its operations bring the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana closer to the citizenry, the Commission has started engaging with stakeholders in the society.
The purpose of these consultations, according to a statement signed and released in Accra by the Commission’s Sylvia Annor, is to hear first-hand what the concerns and issues of key stakeholders are regarding the Commission and its operations.
Additionally, the engagements, the statement in part further read, will provide the EC the opportunity to inform the stakeholders about its current activities and outlook for the future.
So far, the delegation of the EC made up of the Chairperson, Jean Mensa, Deputy Chairperson, Corporate Services, Dr. Bossman Eric Asare and Deputy Chairperson, Operations and other Commissioners has visited a number of media houses including Multimedia, Citi FM, Despite Group of Companies, Graphic Communications Group and the Ghana Journalists Association.
They would in the coming days also meet with the Clergy, Traditional Leaders, Former Presidents, and Civil Society Organizations among others.
“Ultimately, it is expected that at the end of these consultations, the Commission would have not only opened its doors and operations, but would also have gained tremendously from the insights and experiences of stakeholders”, the statement concluded.
