Former President Obasanjo to Lead ECOWAS Election Observer Mission to Ghana

Nigeria’s former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo will lead a 250-member
ECOWAS Election Observer Mission to Ghana’s general elections scheduled for
7th December 2012 within the context of the region’s instrument for provision
of support to Member States holding elections.
 
The ECOWAS team, comprising representatives of various segments of the West
African society, will be in the country for nine days to observe the conduct
of the Presidential, legislative and local elections, expected to contribute
to the deepening of democratic culture in the country.
 
An ECOWAS assessment mission was in Ghana last October to review preparations
for the elections during which the mission members met with various
stakeholders, including representatives of political parties, civil society
organizations and the national electoral commission, to discuss their
perspectives on the preparations for the elections.
 
Through these missions, the region seeks to promote a culture of transparent
and credible elections, consistent with best practices for the enhancement of
regional peace and stability.
