Officials of the UN, Commonwealth and the Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS) have been in Ghana since Tuesday for the signing of the peace accord which had been postponed to December 1.

During the 2012 elections, the National Peace Council brought the presidential candidates to sign the peace accord to accept the outcome of the presidential elections.

But this year’s signing, which had been scheduled for Wednesday, has been postponed as the parties could not agree on a common suitable time.

The release noted that the objective of the ceremony was to get a firm commitment of the candidates to work for a peaceful and open electoral process.

The organizations called on all the presidential candidates to commit to participate in the December 1 event, and contribute to nonviolent, transparent and credible elections. Enditem
