The former Electoral Commission Chairman Dr Kwadjo Afari Gyan during his tenure called for a proper Presidential process to ensure a smooth handing over. He argued that this will prevent the acrimony that characterises a transition to a party other than the then governing party.

In 2001, the transition process was characterised by rancour and acrimony between the outgoing NDC administration and the incoming NPP administration.

In a related development, the then governing NPP pulled out of the transition process. They accused the NDC of behaving in an unacceptable manner during the process.
