President John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned the habit of some political parties always attacking the Electoral Commission (EC).
According to him, the EC is one of the best electioneering bodies in the world and judging from the fact that they have successfully superintended over six successful elections, they need more support and encouragement.
EC new logo
President Mahama also waded into the brouhaha surrounding the new logo of the EC.
According to him, the rumpus over the creation of the new logo is unnecessary; because it will not have any effect on the electoral process.
“Some parties have made it a penchant to continuously attack the Electoral Commission for reasons I can’t understand. This is the time to give the EC peace to do its work . . . I mean how is a logo going to affect the quality of elections in this country? I don’t think it’s a discourse that we should be splitting heads on. I think that our Electoral process has inherent safeguards in it that any serious political party can ensure that it polices that election and ensure the integrity of the election,” he said during his meeting with the Council of State at the Flagstaff House, Monday.
