WANEP launches project to monitor Ghana’s election

 
WANEP has launched an "Election Situational Monitoring, Analysis and Mitigation Project" for the 2016 General Elections in Ghana. The purpose of the project is to monitor the risks that might affect peaceful conduct during the elections. 
 
Mr Chukwuemeka Eze, the Executive Director, WANEP, speaking at the project launch in Accra on Tuesday said "the fiercely competitive nature of party politics have been a factor threatening stability, because there is a wide spread perception of elections as a ‘winner takes all' event.

"This perception, against a backdrop of conspicuous inter-ethnic tensions, raises the stakes and risks for all those involved," he added.

He said it is even more worrisome that in countries like Ghana with a history of electoral decorum, there is now high level of suspicion and lack of confidence in key state institutions that directly or indirectly superintend the electoral processes.

All of us are affected by her or his decisions.

The 1 for 7 Billion campaign calls for a selection process that will find the best person for the job, irrespective of gender, region or background.  To this end we are calling on governments, parliaments and civil society to put forward highly qualified candidates.
