The Electoral Commission (EC) says all is set for Tuesday’s district assembly and unit committee elections.
At a press briefing in Accra on Monday, the Deputy EC chairman in charge of Operations, Mr Samuel Tettey said 159,000 electoral officers have been trained for the elections.
He said the commission has also procured all electoral materials and have sent them to all polling stations.
He said all was set for the election and called all eligible voters to come in their numbers to cast their vote.
He further stated that the lists of all polling and flashpoints have been given to the security services to ensure peaceful elections.
Ghanaians go to the polls on Tuesday, December 17, 2019, to elect Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCE’s) representing their various communities and districts.
The district-level election which is to pave way for governance and development in our communities and districts is a national exercise held once in every four years to nominate and elect candidates representing all communities and districts in the country to aid the governing processes and development at the district or community level.
Here, while the government focuses on national affairs, development and policy implementation, these candidates also focus on the community and district levels in order to aid the government in the national development plan.
Wherefore, these representatives of our local communities and districts account to the people they represent and the government.
