EC needs our uttermost support for 2016 elections – Mahama pleads

Ghanaians have been implored to give the Electoral Commission their “uttermost support” to enable it execute yet another successful election.

As the country goes to the polls in November this year, President Mahama is confident, with the necessary support, the election would be event-free.

In a three-hour State of the Nation Address to Parliament Thursday, the President pointed out that having staged six successive elections successfully, “I have no doubt the EC will rise to the occasion” and hold the seventh elections effectively.

He therefore charged the commission to immediately put in place measures that would ensure a successful election in November.

President Mahama also reiterated that he will do everything within his powers to ensure a successful election.

He also assured that the government will provide the EC all that it needed for the general elections.

Though elections in the country have been peaceful, they are normally preceded by acrimony and false accusations.

However, the President has appealed to all political actors to ensure that this year’s election is observed “clean and devoid of insults”.

The media were also called upon to be circumspect with their language and educate the people to make their own choice instead of feeding them with insults and misinformation.
