The use of virtual public space has become the norm to get messages across to target audience due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent imposition of limited restrictions on all forms of public gathering.

With just five months to the general election in Ghana, it is likely campaigning through large political rallies will shift to the use of virtual media like radio, TV, webinars and social media.

In view of this, the Institute for Democratic Government, IDEG, has held a forum on using virtual space for the 2020 electioneering to promote responsible campaign towards achieving peaceful and credible elections.

On calls for the passage of the Broadcasting Law to regulate broadcasting in the country, Executive Secretary of the National Media Commission, George Sarpong, said the Electronic Communication Act sets better and higher technical standards in broadcasting.

A Technology Innovations Expert, Kwame Ahiabenu, urged political parties to be responsible and refrain from using social media to inflame passions.
