Kofi Bentil is Vice President of IMANI
Vice President of IMANI Ghana has urged electorates in the upcoming elections to stay at their polling stations and film the electoral process after casting their vote.
According to Kofi Bentil, a filming chain will give electorates the power to contest the election results should there be any discrepancies.
He added that the only way to ensure a credible election is for the electorates to police their ballot.
“There is no law against filming the whole electoral process. You don’t need to interfere in the process. The effect of it is that you have evidence on tape even if they shut down the internet,” Mr. Bentil said at a public lecture organised by the Let My Vote Count Alliance in Accra.
Ghana goes to the polls on Decemeber 7, to elect a president and Parliamentarians. The frontrunners are President John Mahama of the ruling NDC and Nana Akuo-Addo of the NPP who is making a third attempt at the Flagstaff House.
