The Eminent Persons Group of Religious Leaders (EPG) and the Christian Council of Ghana have called on the EC to provide an enabling environment for all major stakeholders to engage more in the electoral processes.

This, they say, will help to avoid suspicion on the part of critical stakeholders.

The Religious leaders also appealed to Ghanaians and the political parties to assist the EC in any way possible to facilitate a smooth compilation of the final voter register in the run-up to the December 7 election.

In a statement, Chairman of the Group,  Rt. Reverend Professor J.O.Y. Mante said the Christian Council and the Eminent Person Group believe that the just-ended voter exhibition will help to correct the mistakes identified.

It said by law, the EC is required to publish the voters register for the electorate to validate their details.

It said the voter exhibition also offers an opportunity to correct entries and to challenge the exclusion of eligible and inclusion of ineligible persons before the EC publishes the certified voter register.

The statement, however, said the EPG and the Christian Council have also taken note of the complaints by some political parties, typically the NDC and the response by the EC of the large numbers of registrants, who could not find their names on the provisional voters’ list.

It, therefore, urged the EC to welcome any such complaints and assuage the fears of disenfranchising any registered voter.

Additionally, the EC must fully involve the Interparty Advisory Council, IPAC and other key stakeholders in all its processes to avoid situations where there is mistrust ahead of the polls. The Eminent Persons Group also called on the media to support the process and avoid sensationalism.
