A political scientist, Dr Kojo Opoku Aidoo, says it’s not a future plan that makes the E.C Credible but it rather depends on how the 2016 elections turnout.
He said though the E.C’S 5-Year strategic plan is good, the timing is wrong since that shouldn’t be the focus now. He made these statements in a chat on the XYZ Breakfast Show with Kweku Vander-Pallen.
Meanwhile the E.C, the electoral commission has said it is committed to ensuring that it is the most credible elections regulatory body in Africa.
Speaking at a press conference to unveil the commission’s five-year strategic plan, Chairperson Charlotte Osei said it is keen to ensure that its mandate stipulated by law is fulfilled to the letter.
She said the vision of the EC is to be “a benchmark in Africa for enabling independent trusted world-class democratic elections for the citizens of Ghana and all the candidates who take part in the elections.”
