A deputy Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Bossman Asare is confident that although challenges at the Electoral Commission is daunting, the newly sworn in commissioners are poised to leave a positive mark.

A day after he and other commissioners officially started work at the EC, he opened up in an exclusive interview with TV3 that there are lot of work ahead of the team.

Dr. Bossman Asare mentioned the referenda to be done for the creation of the new regions as well as the high court decision on roadmap for implementing the Representative of People Act (ROPA).

He however told TV3’s Catherine Frimpomaa the “staff and commission are enthusiastic and well able to accomplish the tasks ahead”.

Roadmap for New Regions

The deputy commissioner conceded that the EC may not be able to do the referenda for the six regions in September but was hopeful the exercise would be carried out before the year ends.

“Within one or two weeks we will come out with a table, by the end of the year new regions would be created, there is enough time to put our houses in order and put structures in place, since the state is in support we may not meet the deadline of September but it would be done.”

Some had expressed concerns the removal of Madam Charlotte Osei would cause a major blow to the creation of the regions, but the Minister of Regional Organisation and Development Dan Kweku Botwe assuaged that fear.

Meanwhile, Dr. Asare has given the assurance that the commissioners and the entire staff will build on the legacies at the EC.

“We want to get to the point that our elections would become a reference point for almost every country that want to practice democratic elections.”
