The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has vowed to embark on a mission to gain the confidence of Ghanaians.
Speaking at the inauguration of its audit committee, the chairperson, Jean Mensa, explained that the EC intends to do away with financial malfeasance and mismanagement.
In a report by Citinewsroom.com, she added that the right systems will be implemented to ensure institutional governance.
According to her, audited reports, as well as the cost of elections will be published in order to ensure transparency.
She additionally said the EC will publish “an annual statement, showing the implementation of the recommendations” as required in its reports.
“Together, with the Commission, I believe that we can and we will build a credible system that we can all be proud of.
Let me emphasize that never again should the Electoral Commission of Ghana be engulfed in issues relating to the misapplication of funds.
Never again should the Electoral Commission of Ghana operate without systems and policies to guide our financial operations.
Never again should there be an abuse of the taxpayers’ funds and never again should the Commission flout procurement rules to the detriment of the public purse,” she added.
