2024 elections: no new C.I. to be introduced -EC

During the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting on March 7, the Electoral Commission (EC) announced that there will be no new Constitutional Instrument (C.I.) introduced for the upcoming general elections. This decision was made in collaboration with various political parties. As a result, the existing C.I. will be used for the 2024 general elections, leading to the suspension of proposed changes such as the use of the Ghana Card, guarantor system, and indelible ink.

The resolution by the EC also means that the guarantor system, which was planned to be eliminated in future registration exercises, will now be applicable for new registrants. In addition, the EC has agreed to extend the next limited voter registration exercise to cover hard-to-reach electoral areas beyond its district offices.

Moreover, the EC announced the creation of 4,000 new polling stations, bringing the total to 38,000 for the 2024 general elections. The Commission also shared its election calendar for 2024 and invited input from participating parties during the meeting.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
