Daily Graphic believes that with the right consultations, the current impasse over the voter’s register will be overcome. It says a consensus will pave the way for the Electoral Commission to easily roll out the electoral calendar for this year’s elections. The paper postulates that although the issue of a new voter’s register will still be on the front burner, the EC needs to do more to prepare eligible voters for the polls.
The Graphic believes the electoral management body has come out with a detailed action plan for the December polls and compiling a credible voter register. It, however, says the compilation process is the responsibility of all and calls on the public to support the implementation and roll-out of the plans. The paper says beyond the support, it expects the Electoral Commission to continue with its stakeholder engagements and get the people, political parties, the media and others to understand the processes to guarantee a peaceful, free and transparent Election 2020.
Ghanaian Times agrees with those who argue that in post-Brexit, Britain would be able to focus more on bilateral relationships with Africa and its traditional partners and to really look at Africa for its needs rather than looking at it through the eyes of the EU. Britain finally exited the EU on Friday, to begin a new era outside the continental body that it belonged to for the past 47 years. The paper hopes that all unintended consequences in relation to Brexit such as immigration and development aid would be fashioned out in a manner that would be beneficial to Africa and the UK.
