According to the Council, expediting the hearing’s adjudication will strengthen Ghana’s democratic credentials.

“We have submitted a request to the Chief Justice for a streamlined resolution of the parliamentary election,” Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi, the Council’s chairman, stated on TV3’s Hot Issues program on Sunday, March 3.

He went on to say that in an effort to guarantee free and bloody elections, the National Peace Council has issued recommendations for political parties and the media against hate speech and foul language.

“We’ve also introduced guidelines on inappropriate language and hate speech for political parties and the media,” he stated.

“Nobody is happy about election violence. What we can do is appeal to the institutions responsible for some of these things.”

 

On December 7, 2024, Ghanaians will choose a new president and members of parliament.

The administration would make every effort to guarantee that the Electoral Commission (EC) conducts reliable and impartial polls, as promised by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“This is an election year, and the increased decibel level in all communications will ensure that even the most politically uninterested person among us will know that on December 7, we shall be going to the polls to elect a new president and new Members of Parliament,” stated Akufo-Addo in his penultimate State of the Nation address on Tuesday, February 27.
