The Daily Graphic shares its view on the spate of ballot papers which are rejected during elections. It attributes the act to illiteracy explaining that a majority of voters cannot read signs, instructions and other print material which is likely to lead to mistakes on the ballot paper. The Graphic therefore expresses the need to resource the National Commission for Civic Education to enable them to carry out intensive and sustained educational programmes on the appropriate way of folding ballot papers and sensitize election officials, including party agents to the role they can play to help reduce the high incidence of rejected ballots.

The Ghanaian Times expresses worry about the usage of children for adverts for political purposes, as the country gears up for next week’s polls. It says children have rights under the 1992 constitution which guarantees them a life free of violence, exploitation and any form of harm. The Times believes that based on the content of the child protection principle, political parties have erred in the case of exploitation but the question is, are politicians aware of that? The paper notes that there are other issues of child welfare that need to be focused on to make children more responsible and productive.
