“On behalf of the NDC, I reminded the Commission that Ghana’s electoral process is considered an example and one of the best on the continent of Africa, and this is because of the exchange of ideas and the timely resolution of challenges we face after each and every election.

“I also reiterated the need for the Chairperson and her team to see political parties as active partners in the electioneering process to ensure free, fair and transparent elections,” he wrote.
