EC Convenes IPAC Meeting to Address Concerns on Electoral Calendar

The Electoral Commission (EC) has called for an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting today to deliberate on issues surrounding the electoral calendar for the upcoming December 7 elections.

The purpose of the meeting is to address concerns raised by various political parties regarding the scheduling of the polls.

However, both major political parties have highlighted that they have not received official communication from the EC regarding the calendar.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has voiced reservations about certain aspects of the calendar that have been disclosed to the public.

In an interview with Citi News, Mustapha Gbande, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, criticized the EC for what he perceives as insufficient communication between the institution and its stakeholders.

Gbande emphasized the necessity for the EC to formally communicate with political parties through official channels rather than relying on publications in the media.

He stated, “Political parties do not accept correspondence from the EC through publications, and what is even more shameful for them is to come back and say they did not leak it. This is the same way they will leak the 2024 general elections.”

The IPAC meeting aims to address these concerns and ensure transparency and effective communication between the EC and political stakeholders.
