The Electoral Commission (EC) on Wednesday said it is broadening its consultation to critical stakeholders in Ghana aimed at demystifying its operations as well as bring the commission closer to the citizenry.
“The purpose of these consultations is to hear first-hand what the concerns and issues of key stakeholders are regarding the Commission and its operations,” the Commission said in a statement dated Thursday, May 29, 2019.
“Additionally, the engagements will provide the Electoral Commission with the opportunity to inform stakeholders about its current activities and outlook for the future,” it added.
The delegation is made up of Jean Mensa, Chairperson of the Commission, Dr Bossman Eric Asare, Deputy Chairperson, Corporate Services, Samuel Tettey, Deputy Chairperson, Operations and other Commissioners.
The Commission will meet with the Clergy, Traditional Leaders, former Presidents and Civil Society among others as it had already visited a number of media houses including Multimedia, Citi FM, Despite Group of Companies, Graphic Communications Group, and the Ghana Journalists Association.
“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 Commission said.
