President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) to supervise the December 7 elections to reflect the will of the people.
President Akufo-Addo while submitting his nomination forms to contest the 2020 elections said the December 7 polls should not be decided by the Chair of the Commission nor her staff.
He said: “What is happening today is a necessary incident in democratic governance.
“What the Ghanaian people are expecting is that the election of December 7 will be the election that is conducted in peace, in freedom, in security and transparency so that the results of the elections will reflect the will of the Ghanaian people.”
Meanwhile, Campaign Manager for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Peter Mac Manu has said it is about time the country considered amendment of the law which bars chiefs and traditional leaders from actively engaging in partisan politics.
According to him, times have changed and traditional rulers like other Ghanaians have the right to engage in politics.
