Prof. Miranda Greenstreet, Co-Chairman of the 42-member organization, said during the launch of the CODEO’s roadmap for the 2016 election that the coalition would implement a four inter-related support program during this year’s election cycle.
She said the coalition was in the process of observing and tracking 27 electoral reforms accepted by the Electoral Commission (EC) to provide constructive advocacy towards ensuring inclusive and credible implementation of the electoral reforms.
The other Co-Chairman, Justice Vincent Charles Crabbe, a former Supreme Court Judge, said the 2016 election was an opportunity for the West African country to demonstrate its maturity to the whole world.
“Election 2016 offers an opportunity to further consolidate our democratic and electoral gains based on lessons learned from 2012. Therefore, there is every reason for Ghanaians to sustain this path,” Crabbe said.
He added that the success of the polls would reinforce Ghana’s record as a democratic nation, thereby creating a good political environment for national development and prosperity for all Ghanaians. Enditem
