British High Commissioner to Ghana, H.E Iain Walker has said that the United Kingdom will deploy about 100 observers for Ghana’s elections.
He said the commission will be working with Australian colleagues, Canadian colleagues, colleagues from the European Union and the Electoral Commission.
Speaking on Accra based TV3, the High Commissioner said ”We will be working with our Australian colleagues, Canadian colleagues, colleagues from the European Union, the electoral commission. I think we have about 100 people observing the elections.”
When asked to assess Ghana’s electoral system, he said Ghana’s electoral system is different from other countries and it’s about encouraging the votes.
“I think that mostly every country is different. When I compare Ghana to the UK there are certain seats, certain areas who will always vote for particular group of people. It’s about encouraging the votes. In other areas they may be different. They vote based on issues or based no intentions giving to them by candidates.”
