The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has organized

a two-day Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting to

as well as put measures in place to address shortcomings.

Election Management Body, Mrs. Jean Mensa, called for

the celebration of success in conducting

the polls, despite the pandemic.

the workshop held from 18th to 19th May 2021, polls will be

closed at 3:00 pm, rather than the usual 5:00 pm in the next elections.

Also, IPAC agreed to institute an all-year-round Voter Registration system

where citizens who turn 18, or persons who have not previously

registered, may visit any EC District office with their

Ghana Card or Passport and register as voters.

Introducing an all-year-round Voter Exhibition exercise through the

use of technology (SMS Short Code) as well as have periodic

physical verification at Exhibition Centres was also agreed on.

The stakeholders also set on building further efficiency into

the collation processes by focusing on data entry only at the

Constituency Collation Centre (CCC) is the entry point.

The captured data at the CCC will be made available to all

stakeholders at the Regional and National levels from

which regional and national reports will be generated.

parties and other stakeholders were present.
