The outgoing British High Commissioner to Ghana, Iain Walker has called for less personalised attacks on Electoral Commissioners before, during and after elections in the country.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Tuesday, Mr Walker said, “Going forward, I hope we see less personalised attacks on the Electoral Commissioner as a person. And it’s not just with respect to the Electoral Commissioner of any particular party because the same thing happened in 2016,” he said.

He lauded Ghanaians for holding a successful election despite the challenges that were recorded.

“Election day itself was terrific. I give credit to Ghana for conducting the elections. I know clearly there
were five deaths, but I think with those exceptions, it was broadly a safe election,” he said.

Mr Walker also urged stakeholders in elections to resort to dialogue in addressing contentious issues that may arise.
