The attention of the Electoral Commission has been drawn to a report on the conduct of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency By-election issued by the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) on Thursday, January 31, 2019. 

While the Commission recognizes the important role of the local election observers in ensuring fairness and accontability in the electoral process, the Commission would have expected CODEO to have given the overall picture of the conduct of the poll i.e. the credibilty of the voters register, the voting process, the conduct of the election officials as well as counting and declaration of results etc.

The Commission has therefore taken note of the content of CODEO's report and has thus responded below.

In a statement signed by the Chairperson and copied to Peacefmonline.com, the Commission said it condemns in no uncertain terms, the attempt by sections of the society to link it with the alleged act of violence.

"As a Commission our focus and mandate is to conduct credible, transparent and fair elections that uphold the will of the people as witnessed in all the 137 polling stations in the constituency," a portion of the statement read.

The Commission abhors any form of violence in elections and condemns the act of violence that took place at the residence of the parliamentary candidate of the Nattional Democratic Congress (NDC).
