Let Dampare and his officers oversee 2024 elections, do not interfere – Kwesi Pratt to political parties

The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., has issued a warning to political parties in the country, urging them not to interfere with the duties of the Ghana Police Service during the upcoming elections.

Despite persistent calls from the Seventh Day Adventists Church and a section of the Ghanaian public to change the election date to accommodate their Sabbath Day observance, the Electoral Commission (EC) has maintained December 7 as the official date for the elections.

The Adventists had requested a shift in the election date as it coincided with their sacred Sabbath Day, falling on a Saturday this year.

The EC, however, has decided to stick to December 7 for the elections, rejecting the proposed change to a Tuesday in November.

Additionally, the EC has agreed, during their Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting in Accra, to retain the indelible ink as a verification method and continue with the guarantor system alongside the Ghana Card as identification for the elections.

Emphasizing the crucial role of the police in maintaining law and order during the elections, Kwesi Pratt commended the Inspector General of Police, expressing confidence in Dr. George Akuffo Dampare’s integrity.
