Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has asked the Electoral Commission to remain impartial and independent ahead of the general election in 2020.
The former President, who was speaking when the Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensa, paid a courtesy call on him said the EC plays a very critical role in sustaining the country’s democracy, thus the need to always uphold the commission’s integrity.
“Whenever there is power, there is tension. Everybody wants to be there to manage the power and so there will be pushing and shoving and all that. It should be for a referee to show firmness, impartiality and also have the focus.”
