Deputy Ashanti Regional Director of the Commission, Mr. Raphael Wilson Arthur, said they should send strong signal to everybody that they did not approve of reckless behavior.
He asked that all political actors upheld the political parties’ code of conduct to remove needless tension and conflict.
He said it was important for everybody to show responsibility and avoid the aggressive rhetoric.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, he said, the election should be a contest of ideas – how to move the nation forward.
He said the expectation was that the election campaign would be on message to appeal to voters and help them to make the right decisions.
He spoke of the intensification of the Commission’s education campaign in the region to encourage the people to get right with the law.
They were working closely with the Information Service Department (ISD) to assist all to have better understanding of their fundamental rights and civic responsibilities.
Mr. Arthur said they had been visiting the churches, markets, engaging youth groups, civil society organizations and holding community durbars to achieve this goal.
He stated that teaching voters to properly thumbprint the ballot papers had been their other focus.
