US Ambassador meets EC Chair Jean Mensa on upcoming elections

The US Ambassador to Ghana, Virgina E. Palmer, has met with the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), Jean Mensa.

The meeting was to discuss Ghana’s district level elections in 2023 and the national elections in 2024.

The EC is expected to hold this year’s District Assembly Elections, which will see new assemblymen and unit committee members take office.

The elections are intended to serve as a trial for the general elections in 2024 to elect a new president and Members of Parliament as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s rule comes to an end.

Jean Mensa is slated to preside over national elections for the second time following 2020, which resulted in a number of disputes and the recent meeting with the US Ambassador would most likely find a way to end that in the next elections.

The EC’s meeting with the US Ambassador is expected to ensure “free”, “fair” and “non-violent” polls.

The EC is, however, yet to announce the date for the district elections this year.
