November 7 voting day yet to be approved – EC
The decision to accept 7th November of every four years as voting day in Ghana is currently before Cabinet, a Deputy Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Georgina Amankwaa has told Onua 95.1 FM’s Yen Sempa.
The Deputy Chairperson said the proposed Bill will then leave the domain of Cabinet to the Council of State and then finally to Parliament for deliberation.
It is after Parliament has enacted the bill into law that the EC can conclude that the elections will be held on 7th November, she explained.
However, Madam Amankwaa, who is legal practitioner by profession and trade unionist, speaking to Kwame Karikari on Tuesday, explained that the EC is ready for the election in November 2016.
“Parliament has not approved of the 7th November, but we are sure it will be approved at their next sitting,” she prayed.
