FORMER PRESIDENT OBASANJO TO LEAD ECOWAS ELECTION OBSERVER MISSION TO GHANA

							
	Nigeria’s former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo will lead a 250-member 
ECOWAS Election Observer Mission to Ghana’s general elections scheduled for 
7th December 2012 within the context of the region’s instrument for provision 
of support to Member States holding elections.
 
The ECOWAS team, comprising representatives of various segments of the West 
African society, will be in the country for nine days to observe the conduct 
of the Presidential, legislative and local elections, expected to contribute 
to the deepening of democratic culture in the country.
 
An ECOWAS assessment mission was in Ghana last October to review preparations 
for the elections during which the mission members met with various 
stakeholders, including representatives of political parties, civil society 
organizations and the national electoral commission, to discuss their 
perspectives on the preparations for the elections.
 
Through these missions, the region seeks to promote a culture of transparent 
and credible elections, consistent with best practices for the enhancement of 
regional peace and stability.
