Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Jean Mensa has touted the 2020 General Election as transparent, credible, peaceful and historic.
She said Ghana’s electoral story can be an inspiration to the sub-region and provide best practices for other countries to emulate.
Speaking at a High-level ECOWAS Parliamentary Seminar at Winneba in the Central region, Mrs Mensa said last year’s General election has proven that elections in the sub-region can be run efficiently despite the odds and challenges.
Mrs Mensa regretted the 7 lives lost during the polls. She said although the deaths did not occur at the EC’s polling stations or arose out of misconduct on the part of the Commission, she asked the security agencies to release its findings.
The EC Chairperson disclosed that the Commission saved the nation 90 million dollars in organizing the election due to the cost-saving measures it adopted.
