The Center for Performance Tracking and Outcome Mapping (CEPTOM), a non- governmental organisation has taken up the challenge to engage in election observation across the 16 regions.

In a press statement issued by the Programme Director, Mr Ato Bonfol, CEPTOM said together with its partners, World Peace Volunteers, there were poised to observe the December 7 elections across the 16 regions in order to ensure a dispute free election.

He added that the organisation will be covering 100 constituencies including some of the flash points identified by the Police command and have recruited a minimum of 25 persons for each constituency.

“We are covering 100 constituencies including some of the flash points as put out by the Police command. In each constituency we have recruited a minimum of 25 persons who through technology will be interacting with a control room who will collate the various incidents and report it as they happen,” it said

He also urged other bodies that will be covering the elections to ensure that the Electoral Commission as well as political parties comply with the constitutional instrument guiding the elections thus, CI 127.

He indicated that the organisation will work together with the media to report any incidents whether good or bad to ensure transparent and fair elections

“We know other bodies covering this year’s election will also help Ghana stand tall by observing that the Electoral Commission as well as political parties comply with CI 127. Which is the constitutional instrument guiding this year’s elections. Together with the media, we hope to bring to the fore any incidents good or bad, so we can ensure we have a transparent and fair process,” he added.
