EC sensitizes PWDs on participation in elections

The Electoral Commission (EC) has held a deliberation with groups of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in Northern Region on measures being put in place to ensure their participation in the December polls.

The event, held in Tamale, was also to share information on the Constitutional Instrument (C.I 94), which forms part of the laws governing the conduct of the December polls.

Mr Bruce Ayisi, Northern Regional Director of EC, assured PWDs that polling stations would be mounted at areas that would be accessible to them.

He said the EC would also design a tactile balloting system to enable the blind to vote independently and in secret.

Participants lauded EC for prioritizing their needs regarding the elections.
