2024 Polls: Conduct a strong voter education – Int’l Association of World Peace Advocates tells EC

The International Association of World Peace Advocates (IAWPA) has urged the Electoral Commission ( EC ) to ensure a level playing field for all political parties and candidates ahead of the 2024 general elections.

IAWPA also asked the Commission to implement robust security measures to prevent violence and intimidation.

“The Electoral Commission must conduct strong voter education and awareness programs to promote peaceful participation and also establish effective communication channels for reporting and addressing electoral concerns,” a statement issued by IAWPA said.

To the political parties and their leaders, the association asked them to engage in constructive dialogue, present clear and achievable plans, and demonstrate a commitment to transparency and accountability.

Fostering unity and inclusivity among diverse parties supporting groups is crucial for a peaceful and successful election process, it said.

“The peaceful conduct of elections is crucial for Ghana’s democratic growth, economic development, and social cohesion.  We trust that the Electoral Commission will take all necessary steps to ensure the safety and integrity of the electoral process. To help avoid election malpractice, election with zero death toll, elections with no casualties.

“We call on the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to encourage national unity and patriotism and also to ensure smooth violent-free election 2024.

“We again ask the President, H.E. to show empathy to the youth of this country by providing all security measures to enhance peaceful elections.

“We call on all opposition parties and candidates to conduct all campaigns void of hate speech and inflammatory comments to avoid unnecessary violence, especially among the youth.”
