Mr. Ali Dauda, Deputy Upper West Regional Director of the Electoral Commission (EC), has appealed to the media to report on electoral issues responsibly, to promote free, fair and violent-free polls in December.
He asked polling agents to act as watchdogs of the polls to enhance credibility of the process.
Mr Dauda made the call at a two-day capacity building workshop, organised by the Commission to brief media personnel in the region on the electoral processes, on the theme: “increasing knowledge of civil society and community-based organizations in Ghana’s electoral process”, in Wa.
He reminded Ghanaians that results of the presidential election are officially declared through a Constitutional Instrument, signed and declared by the Chairman of the EC, and results of parliamentary election are declared officially by Gazette notification.
