The African Electoral Institute (AEI) has commended the recent Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting between the Electoral Commission (EC) and leaders of political parties, hailing it as a successful and forward-looking step towards the 2024 general elections.

In a statement released on March 11th, 2024, the AEI expressed satisfaction with the new developments announced by the EC during the IPAC meeting held on March 7th, 2024.

The EC has finally published the electoral calendar for the 2024 elections, with the presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for December 7th, 2024. Additionally, the Commission has decided against introducing new Constitutional Instruments (CIs), opting to maintain the existing ones.

The limited voter registration exercise has been set for a 21-day period, commencing on Tuesday, May 7th, 2024, and concluding on Monday, May 27th, 2024. This exercise will allow eligible citizens to register for the upcoming polls.

Furthermore, the EC has announced that the filing fees for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections will remain unchanged from the previous election cycle. The use of indelible ink, a measure to prevent multiple votes, will also be maintained.

“AEI lauds IPAC on this feat as a build-up on a strong beginning for the 2024 general elections, underscoring consensus-building and a peaceful, credible election,” stated Augustus Kweku Eshun, the Public Relations Officer of AEI, in the statement.

The AEI, a Civil Society Organization (CSO) dedicated to delivering sustainable electoral solutions and strengthening electoral stakeholder capacity, urged IPAC to continue the dialogue and maintain the rapport established during the recent meeting.

“We urge IPAC to continue the dialogue and maintain the rapport in the just-ended meeting,” Eshun added, emphasizing the importance of sustained engagement and consensus-building among key electoral stakeholders.

As Ghana gears up for the 2024 general elections, the AEI’s endorsement of the IPAC communiqué highlights the significance of collaboration and transparency in ensuring a free, fair, and credible electoral process.
