The Deputy Chairperson of the EC in-charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, says the Commission is pleased about the peaceful conduct of the just-ended District Level Election.

He said the polls did not witness any electoral breaches and violence.

Asked about the low turnout, he said, it was a major issue that required national attention and therefore, the Commission would share its report with the relevant stakeholders for the requisite action to be taken.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu says the security situation for the polls was also calm and devoid of electoral breaches.

The few significant issues that came from ‘Ekumfi Imuna’ in the Mankessim District of the Central Region and the Aowin Municipality in the Western North Regions, he said, were handled expertly by the Security Personnel.

Some residents of these areas threatened to prevent the elections from being held in their areas over deplorable roads.

At Ekumfi Imuna, some of them burnt car tyres and firewood in the middle of the road amidst curses to demonstrate the seriousness of their threat. The polls were thus suspended in those areas.

ACP Eklu said minor infractions, such as petty quarrels and misunderstanding that occurred at few polling stations were dealt with by the security officers.

A report by the Coalition of Domestic Observers, which deployed 1,100 observers, has been generally positive.
