EC to conduct District Level Elections at Jasikan/Guan Districts on December 19

Accra, Dec. 06, GNA – The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced that it will conduct the District Level Elections in the Jasikan and Guan Districts on the 19th of December 2023.

This follows the passage of the Constitutional Instrument (CI) 119 and in accordance with the District Level Elections Regulations, 2015 (CI 89),

The EC in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, said it would be recalled that Nominations for the 2023 District Level Elections were not received in the Jasikan and Guan Districts on the 16th and 17th of November 2023, as was the case in the other districts.
