The Member of Parliament for Dormaa East, Paul Apraku Twum Barimah has called on Ghanaians to give maximum support to the Electoral Commission (EC) to effectively deliver on its mandate.

Speaking in an interview, he said reposing confidence in the EC would strengthen the Commission to efficiently and effectively deliver perfectly on its mandate.

He said Article 46 of the 1992 Constitution provides that “In the performance of its functions, the Electoral Commission shall not be subject to the control or direction of any authority”, except as provided in the Constitution or any other law not inconsistent with the Constitution.

It also operates to ensure the coordination of training programmes. recruitment and training of officials for all electoral activities; liaising with other training delivery institutions and other fellowship awarding bodies for delivery of training programmes and exercising oversight responsibility over the Electoral Commission Training School.
