The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has stated that its credibility is still solid as a rock despite various attempts by some section of the public to soil its reputation.

Speaking to Hello FM's King Edward this morning, the Director of Public affairs for the Commission, Mr. Christian Owusu Parry, noted that the Electoral Commission has earned a very good reputation over the years for its hard work around the continent adding, the Supreme Court decision has vindicated the commission.

Asked about reforms in future elections, Mr. Parry added that the commission is ready to welcome any changes that will be proposed. He also added that they as a commission are going to sit down and assess themselves and also find ways to improve its services.

In the final verdict of the Supreme Court, one of the nine justices, Justice Jones Victor Dotsey, granted some of the claims made by the petitions and provided a roadmap for future elections.

Meanwhile, lawyer James Quarshie-Idun, who represented the EC in the just ended election dispute has indicated that the final ruling of the nine Justices of the Supreme Court, has vindicated the commission.

According to him, the Justices have affirmed that the EC did nothing wrong.
