The Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG) has initiated the process of scaling up its activities for the December 7 elections.

After successfully facilitating a historic Third Presidential Election Peace Pact signing ceremony on Friday, December 4, IDEG will from Sunday, December 6, 2020, reactivate its election situation rooms around the country and deploy into 100 plus constituencies, 700 election observers.

The observers who have already undergone training by the Electoral Commission and IDEG training faculty are in high spirits and well-prepared to get into the field and watch the elections with eagle eyes.

The nerve centre of IDEG’s election observation activities is the Elections Situation Room which gathers, screens, analyzes and disseminates vital information about major developments about the elections round the country.

Situation rooms which have been located in the capitals of Ghana’s ten old regions are linked by various lines of communication to the National Elections Situation Room based at the IDEG House, East Legon in Accra.

With the overarching objective of promoting credible and peaceful elections, the IDEG situation rooms are open to other election stakeholders.

Election observers both domestic and international, media representatives, security agencies and members of the public are free to visit and share information.
