Voting ends on a peaceful note in Ghana

The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) described the Sunday elections in Ghana as peaceful, with very few irregularities as voting came to an end. In its first report on the vote, Professor Miranda Greenstreet, Co-Chair of CODEO, said at the time of beginning the polls, reports from observers suggested relatively few problems at polling stations. Greenstreet said at the time of opening of the polls, some polling stations lacked uniformed security personnel, saying: “one in ten polling stations nationally reported no uniformed personnel. “The security agencies said there have been no serious breaches of the peace and described the situation is “encouraging”. Deputy Superintendent of Police Kwasi Ofori said although there were some challenges, the electoral process was proceeding smoothly and they expected the trend to continue till voting ended. “The general security situation all over the country is very encouraging. Voters are comporting themselves well and there have been no grave security concerns,” Ofori said. “Everything is under control and we would ensure that the polls are peaceful,” he added.
