But today, gradually Ghanaian voters have arrived at a state of mind where developmental ideas and competency matters most and the year 2020 election will be a demonstration of such state of mind”.
According to the association Ghanaians in the last three general elections, threw their votes in for candidates due to influence of political propaganda and other personal interests.

We believe the electoral commission will contribute its best as usual to enhance a transparent, free and fair elections” the statement emphatically stated.
