The 10-member committee set up by the Electoral Commission (EC) to review the proposals on Ghana’s electoral system has recommended that the date for  general elections must be changed from December 7 to November 7.

This, the committee said will allow for a smooth transition from one government to the other. This was revealed on Friday when the committee presented the report to the outgoing chairman, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan.

The committee chaired by Georgina Opoku Amoako also advised that the issue of over voting and no verification no vote must be explicitly defined.

According to her, if the reforms are implemented to the latter, elections in Ghana will be flawless. The committee was inaugurated in January 2015 to supervise the implementation of electoral reforms ahead of the 2016 general elections.

This was in response to the Supreme Court’s directive that the EC must undertake electoral reforms to prevent repetition of the circumstances which led to the 2012 Election Petition.
