Election taskforce inaugurated in Upper East

The Upper East Region has inaugurated an Election Taskforce to ensure that the Region does not record any incident during the December general election. Members of the Taskforce are made of the Police, CEPS, Fire Service, Prison Service, Immigration, BNI and the Electoral Commission.

Inaugurating the Taskforce at the Regional Coordinating Council, the Upper East Regional Minister, Mr Mark Woyongo, appealed to the members to work hard to ensure that the region records the least problems in the elections.

He said the President had assured the International Community that the election would be organized in a peaceful manner, adding that it would not be in the interest of the government to mar the international recognition Ghana had chalked in terms of democracy.

The Upper East Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police Bright Oduro said the Police would soon come out with deployment plans including meetings with political parties.

He said the police would endure that the elections in the Region are peaceful.
