The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Charlotte Osei has given the assurance that the elections will come off as scheduled on December 7, 2016.
According the EC boss the various law suit will not have any effect on the election date. She opined the EC is very mindful of the days left or the elections.
Speaking in an interview on the BBC, Madam Osei said, “We will not allow law suits to subvert the process and so we are going to get a definitive ruling from the Supreme Court likely this week; at the latest, early next week, but in the meantime, we have started the process of printing the parliamentary ballot papers to make up some of the time and so we are in a good place to meet the December 7 date”.
Touching on the 12 disqualified presidential candidates over errors on their nomination forms, the EC boss also dismissed suggestions that the matter should have been resolved at the Inter-party advisory Committee (IPAC) level.
“If the law says someone has to provide ABC to be properly qualified, it is not a decision to be taken by IPAC, that will be the commission abdicating its legal responsibilities to the people of Ghana to IPAC”.
