A Senior Political Science lecturer at the College of Ghana states criticised the Electoral Commission (EC) dealing with of meetings with stakeholders in the electoral method.
Professor Ransford Gyampo claimed the Commission has adopted a lackadaisical strategy in building consensus between its stakeholders.
“It is a lazy solution to resort to the strains of resistance by swiftly touting one’s mandate and getting to be intransigent, in the face of opposition and polarisation. It is been like that considering that 1992,” he reported on the Tremendous Morning Clearly show, Thursday.
He described that more than the many years the Electoral Fee has not engaged totally with its stakeholders to be the institution it was in truth mandated to be.
“RIPAL was a legislation handed in 2006. Afari-Gyan could not put into action it, Charlotte Osei could not implement it and I’m not confident that Jean Mensa will be able to implement it. The cause partly is as a end result of the simple fact that there seems to be no consensus from the key stakeholders and its implementation,” he claimed
“So the lack of consensus above the a long time in my view has proven that EC itself has not labored so tricky to carry all its stakeholders on board in the execution of its mandate.”
“In as substantially as I believe that the mandate of establishments ought to be highly regarded, the application and insistence on the mandate to carry out a piece of work must nonetheless be carried out with some trepidation and liable discretion especially in the experience of polarisation. In buy not to usher institutions into a routine of robots.”
“Although Professor Gyampo acknowledges the actuality the EC has not appropriately engaged with its stakeholders to deliver a complete company, ‘we should really not enable it to fester or go on’.
I would suggest all that this is not the time to rigidly insist on a mandate and also to the political functions that this is not the time to rigidly be intransigent.”
