European observers to monitor Ghana’s presidential and legislative elections

A European mission of electoral observers will monitor Ghana’s presidential and legislative elections 7 December, the European Union has said in a statement. To be deployed under the European Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights, the mission, which will cost 2.5 million euros, will be made up of seven experts, 24 long-term observers and 34 short-term observers. Recognizing that Ghana has made an impressive progress in terms of good governance and respect of human rights, the EU stressed that the forthcoming elections would help to consolidate and reinforce democracy in the West African country. The Ghanaians will be going to the polls 7 December to elect a new president, who will succeed John Kufuor, and the 230 members of Parliament.
