Broadcast journalist, Paul Adom-Otchere has recommended to the Electoral Commission to double the number of polling stations in the country to ensure social distancing during the 2020 General Elections.

According to the host of Good Evening Ghana, Ghana has no choice but to put in every measure possible to make the 2020 elections happen regardless of the coronavirus pandemic.

Given this, he proposed that all polling stations across the country must be doubled to enable spacing and also to avoid long queues at polling stations as a means of ensuring the safety of electorates.

“All 30,000 polling stations across the country must be doubled. The normal queues we use to see on Election Day, we can’t have them for 2020 elections because of COVID-19. We should have a socially distant queue,” Paul Adom-Otchere indicated.

He added that the EC must provide nose masks and gloves for all Ghanaian citizens on the day of elections mentioning that sanitizers, soaps, and buckets of water for handwashing must also be provided.

“The EC must provide nose mask for all 12 million people, a pair of gloves as well,” he said.

The Good Evening Ghana host said from all indications Ghana is likely to conduct a huge budget election this year.

Paul Adom-Otchere lists three things likely to happen should elections not be held this year

“7th December must occur. That is the conclusion. The elections must happen and that is what the constitution is telling us. The constitution hasn’t given us any room not to have elections on the 7th of December. In whatever circumstances, the constitution says that 7th December is a ‘sine qua non’ to the establishment of the constitution and our democracy,” he emphasized.
