According to the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), this is because the constitutional review process itself has stalled, thereby making it impossible to add on.

The committee formed was mandated to review the 2012 elections and designed to prevent the challenges which characterized it.

Political parties in Ghana under the Institute of Economic Affairs’ (IEA) Ghana Political Parties Programme (GPPP) made some proposals to the EC on electoral reforms to enhance the electoral system.

The committee has been welcomed by the various political parties and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

According to Mr Nketiah on Citi FM, the constitutional reform which is currently ongoing has been stalled.

 “I don’t think that it will be feasible for us to wish to make changes that will require constitutional amendment, he added.”

The Committee have been given up to three months to present its report to the EC.

The 10-member committee chaired by a member of the EC, Georgina Opoku Amankwa consist of former Chairman Peter Mac Manu (NPP), Asiedu Nketia (NDC), Christian Owusu Parry (EC), Mrs Rebecca Kabuki, James Kwabena Bomfeh (CPP), Kwesi Jonah, Anim Kofi Addo,  Franklin Oduro and Ransford Gyampoh.
