Accra, Dec. 7, GNA ? The IDEG – CFI has taken note of concern from sections of the public regarding the conduct of the polls.  These include the late start of voting, delays in delivery of voting materials, problems with verification machines, crowd management and security concerns. A statement in Accra signed by Major General Coleman, Chairman of CFI said “Our observation from the election situation rooms across the country shows that voters in areas where there are long queues are anxious about whether they will be able to vote after 1700 hours or not.

As we approach the end of polls we urgently call on the Electoral Commission to consider all options within the law to ensure that voters are able to exercise their franchise.

Considering that voting and counting of votes may drag on into the night, we call on the EC to ensure the provision of adequate lighting in all areas so that the process will end peacefully.

We further appealed to all voters especially those in affected polling stations to stay calm while the EC and the security agencies take steps to secure the polling environment for the orderly and peaceful conduct of polls.

The statement asked the media to continue to educate the public and be circumspect in their reportage in order not to disturb public peace.
