Ghana’s Electoral Commission which is led by Jean Adukwei Mensah says it disagrees with some aspects of the report presented to it by the European Union Election Observer Mission (EU EOM) on the December 2020 general elections which was marred with violence at certain parts of the country.
Two weeks ago when the EU EOM released the election 2020 report, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) shot it down, saying the report does not reflect what actually transpired during the election.
“There is no aspect of this report that talks about security, recommendations that have been made, nothing said on security, I think that is a very big flaw in the monitoring tools that was used by the EU…these are the things they have to look for,” the NDC’s Deputy General Secretary, Peter Otokunor said on JoyNews.
The ruling party which won the election however, lauded the report as they say it vindicates tehri stance that the 2020 elections was free and fair.
But for the EC which conducted the elections, aspects of the report churned out by the foreign observer mission cannot be agreed on. The EC, however, could not categorically state the aspects in the report it disagrees with.
“The Electoral Commission thanks the EU EOM for its report on the 2020 General Elections.
While the Commission appreciates the overall feedback and ranking, it does not agree with some aspects of the report.
That notwithstanding, the Commission remains committed to undertaking free fair credible transparent and peaceful elections in Ghana,” the EC wrote on their social social media handles.
