Request for action on corruption at the Electoral Commission in Ghana.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

In June 2017, a user on the Klarity platform wanted to renew their Voters ID card. The user recorded the Electoral Commission officer Harriet Djani at Kasoa, Accra, who claimed they were out of laminate cards and that a transportation charge of 30 GHS to get it from another office was required. 

The same events occurred when a friend of the Klarity user went to the same office and EC official to renew their ID card and was also asked to pay 40 GHS for transportation. The official requesting the charge and receiving the money is seen and caught on video.

This case was picked up by Corruption Watch on January 10, 2018, which is featured on Joy FM's "Super Morning Radio Show", the Head of Communications at Electoral Commission (EC) first declined to comment and then later responded by saying they would address the issues raised and set up a committee immediately to investigate the case.

On January 17, 2018, Corruption Watch on Joy FM reported that EC would respond with a statement within a week. 

Today, we still have not heard anything from the EC and one week has passed. Help us hold the EC accountable for their promises by signing this petition and demanding that the EC respond to the case at hand.
