The Electoral Commission(EC) of Ghana has emphasized that their role is not to choose a leader for the country in the upcoming general elections.
Ghanaians go to the polls on December 7, to elect their president for the next four years.
According to the EC, electing leaders for the country on the said date remain solely the duty of the citizens.
"It is not in our control to determine the outcome of the Elections. Only the citizens and citizens alone can determine who should lead them – not the Electoral Commission.

Moreover, the EC has been urged by several non-governmental Organizations ( NGOs) to ensure free and fair elections as the main coordinators and the only group that can ensure peace.
Nevertheless, various parties are on a campaign tour across the country to disseminate their message to the people before the decision day.
Hence, the ruling party New Patriotic Party(NPP) have intensified their campaign in order to retain the seat. While, fierce rivals National Democratic Congress(NDC), who were voted out of power four years ago are also optimistic to claim the seat this time.
