My Christian Values Will Not Allow Me To Rig 2020 Elections – Jean Mensa

The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa has assured that she will not rig the December polls for any political party.

According to her, her Christian values prevents her from rigging the election in favour of a particular party.

“As a Christian, I am a firm believer in the principles that Christ stands for, Justice, Peace and Truth, I am committed to ensuring that these principles are reflected in everything that both I and the Commission do, I am committed to being fair to conducting my activities without fear or favour,” she said.

Mrs Mensa gave the assurance at the launch of the 2020 “Agent of Peace Campaign” by the Church of Pentecost in Accra on Sunday.

She said she will do her utmost best to maintain the credibility of Ghana’s Election Management Body has achieved over the years.

“I commit to work and undertake my duties to ensure that it is the will of the people which is the will of God that stands, as an agent of peace I commit to truth and not to alter the will of God. The onus is on me to abide by this principle and God being my guide and helper I am confident that I will not let him and the people of Ghana down in Jesus’ name,” Mrs Mensa said.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the EC of scheming with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to rig the December polls and called for more scrutiny from observes and the international community.

The most recent contention in the electoral process has been the alleged deletion of names from the voter register in NDC strongholds.

This led to the flagbearer of the party, Former President John Mahama cutting short his campaign tour of the Bono region last Tuesday.

Reacting to the allegations, Mrs Mensa said the election results cannot be manipulate under her watch.

She added that political parties and other relevant bodies are constantly engaged in all processes leading to the conduct of elections, hence leaving no room for manipulation.
