Ghana’s general election is scheduled for December 7
Mr. Obasanjo’s mission is within the context of the region’s instrument for provision of support to member states holding elections.
The ECOWAS team, comprising representatives of various segments of the West African society, will be in the country for nine days to observe the conduct of the presidential, legislative and local elections, expected to contribute to the deepening of democratic culture in the country.
A statement from ECOWAS, Thursday, said an assessment mission was in Ghana last October to review preparations for the elections during which the mission members met with various stakeholders, including representatives of political parties, civil society organizations and the national electoral commission, to discuss their perspectives on the preparations for the elections.
Through these missions, ECOWAS said, “the region seeks to promote a culture of transparent and credible elections, consistent with best practices for the enhancement of regional peace and stability.”
