CODEO accuses political parties, EC of flouting COVID-19 protocols

The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has said that political parties and the Electoral Commission are flouting the COVID-19 protocols.

CODEO said this in its second pre-election environment observation report during the month of October.

It said “With respect to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, CODEO observer reports indicate that few people adhered to the social distancing protocols and wore face masks during campaign activities and other activities by stakeholders. 

“For instance, a rally organised on October 7, 2020, in Ahomahomasu in the Fanteakwa North constituency of the Eastern region to welcome the vice-presidential aspirant of the NDC was very crowded with party supporters flouting the required social distancing protocol. During the voter transfer exercise at the Akwatia district office of the EC, social distancing was not observed among some applicants, and only few reportedly wore face masks.” the reported noted.

CODEO has however reminded all political parties, supporters, EC and all stakeholders to adhere to the protocols of COVID-19.
