Ensuring fair and transparent elections in 2024, a collective responsibility

According to President Akufo-Addo, securing fair and transparent elections in 2024 is a collective responsibility.

As a result, he has called Ghanaians to join forces to guarantee that the impending 2024 elections are fair and transparent.

He stated that the cornerstone of successful democracies around the world is based on viable elections, which must be the priority of all citizens as we approach the December general elections.

He made the statements in an address to the country commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Fourth Republic.

“Democracies are grounded on viable elections, and, this year, like we have done on eight (8) other preceding occasions, we will go to the polls to elect the President and my successor. No true democrat can disregard the importance of elections and the sanctity of the ballot.”

“It must, thus, be in our collective interest to ensure that the rules and regulations for the conduct of this year’s elections are fair and transparent and that we all develop respect for them, a respect that should not be a function of whether you win or lose.”

“All stakeholders, that is the Electoral Commission, the political parties and their leaders, the electorate, and citizenry, should work to assure the consolidation of Ghanaian democracy and help us maintain our pride of place on the continent as a model of democracy in Africa.

“At the end of it all, there should be no lingering doubt about the legitimacy of the election, and the winning candidates, at the conclusion of the process, should receive the unalloyed support of all. That is how we can strengthen our democracy and the peace and stability of our nation.”
