Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hannah Tetteh, in a keynote address, observed how electoral processes on the continent had been marred and continue to be marred by irregularities.

‘The perception of irregularities and unfairness has dire consequences and there is the need for practical measures to solve the problem,’ the minister urged.

Several factors, she said, account for the rejection of election results on the continent, including over-voting.

Commenting on the use of biometric technology, Ms Tetteh indicated how the system, which was used in the 2012 elections of Ghana, had helped in minimizing electoral disputes on the continent.

She, however, recognized the need for cyber security and the control of cyber fraud through the use of the system in order to boost and sustain the citizenry’s confidence in the use of the technology.

Thelma Iremiren, an election official from Nigeria, who chaired the opening ceremony, said the biometric technology was the best bet for elections in Africa, considering the level of electoral challenges confronting the continent.

Meanwhile, Claude Maerten, Head of the EU Delegation, disclosed that the donor community had reshaped its approach to the support it renders to poor countries to organize their periodic elections.

‘EU attaches high importance to the development of electoral processes and democracy and the rule of law, he asserted.’

According to him, electoral bodies that had used the biometric system on the continent had benefited immensely from doing so.
