Former President John Dramani Mahama has admonished the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission to strive to improve upon the performance of its predecessors as the country prepares for the 2020 general elections, ABC News can report.
He said Ghana has become an excellent module emulated by countries worldwide and that deliberate effort must be made to maintain the enviable feat.
In a Twitter post, Saturday, the NDC flagbearer maintained that the country, being an “inspiration” to others, will continue to be under the lenses of the world, particularly, in an election, urging high standards to be met.
“The world has come to expect nothing short of inspiration from Ghana. 2020 is an election year, the eyes of the world will continue to be fixed on us,” he said.
“We need to meet the high standards set by the previous Electoral Commission and even better it,” he added.
His comments come at a time when his party, NDC, together with other opposition parties, have formed a coalition to oppose the proposed compilation of a new voters’ register.
The party, and its allies, embarked on a demonstration in the Northern Region which they hope to replicate in Ashanti and Greater Accra Regions.
