There Must Be Trust Between The EC And Citizens – Prof. Gyampo
Professor Ransford Gyampo, a Senior Political Science Lecturer at the University of Ghana, has advocated for the building of trust between the Electoral Commission and the citizenry, as part of efforts to strengthen Ghana’s democracy.
He said the outcome of the 2020 general election and the Presidential Election Petition had deepened the already existing trust deficit of the EC by the citizenry.
Prof Gyampo said this in a Virtual Public Forum, organized by the Progressive Intellectuals on Ghana’s 2020 Presidential Election Petition.
Speaking on the topic: “The 2020 Election Petition and the Future of Ghana’s Electoral Commission,” Prof Gyampo said numerous mistakes made by the EC in declaring the presidential results and correcting them, without allowing key stakeholders from benefiting from inside explanation, allegedly raised trust issues.
