This was after he led a five-member delegation of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), African Union (AU), and UN on a three-day joint high-level mission to Ghana.

The mission, he said, was to reiterate the strong support of the international community for peaceful, transparent and credible elections.

Chambas told the media the signing of the code of conduct would be a public event to be witnessed by Ghanaians and international observers comprising the ECOWAS, AU and the UN. He expressed the hope that political all parties would demonstrate what the signed in their campaign and general political activities.

Other key issues to be addressed by the accord are the assessment of risks of election-related violence and the need to explore further options to support dialogue and consensus by stakeholders on critical issues.

The envoy called for the strengthening of Ghana’s institutions, adding that the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Judiciary deserved the respect of all Ghanaians.

He warned that nothing should be done to undermine the two institutions between now and the elections.

The December 7 poll is expected to be a very close contest between the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the main opposition New Patriotic party (NPP). Enditem
