Presenting the EU EOM’s final report on its observation of the election, Mr. Nart explained that the mission returned to Ghana to present the report to the country’s authorities, and to discuss with stakeholders the proposed reforms contained in the report.

“The conclusion in the mission’s final report is that the elections were efficiently organised, competitive, that voters participated freely in large numbers, and that the process successfully met a range of international standards,” Mr. Nart said, adding that the overall conduct of voting was assessed positively in 95 per cent of polling stations observed.

“However, shortcomings already identified by previous EU election observation missions remain, such as the misuse of state resources, the abuse of incumbency, vote-buying, and unregulated campaign finances. These resulted in an uneven playing field.”
