EC TO OPEN NOMINATIONS FOR DISTRICT-LEVEL ELECTIONS MONDAY Featured

The Electoral Commission will open nominations from Monday October 7 for prospective candidates who wish to contest for this year’s district assembly and unit committee elections.

This was announced in a news release issued and signed by Mrs Jean Mensa, chairperson of the Commission.

According to the release, the nomination exercise will end on Friday October 11, and is expected to take place in all electoral areas in each metropolis, municipality or district across the country between the hours of 9am to 12 noon and 2pm to 5pm each day.

Guidelines

The EC statement announced that candidates seeking election to a metropolitan, municipal or district assembly should ensure that their nomination forms are signed or marked by two registered voters, as a proposer and a seconder.

The nomination must also be supported by 18 other registered voters in the metropolis, municipality or district.

The statement added that those seeking election to a unity committee must have their nominations supported by eight registered voters.

According to the statement, prospective candidates will be required to deliver their completed nomination forms in person, or cause them to be delivered by their proposers or seconders, to the returning officer at a designated place in their electoral area or unit within the district.

Caution

The statement said all potential candidates should be nominated on the official EC nomination form, available at each electoral area, unit committee of the district or at the district offices of the Commission.

It urged prospective candidates to ensure that they furnish their respective district returning officers with the requisite documents, such as four copies of a recent postcard-size photograph with a red background, showing the full face and both ears of the candidate.

It also cautioned registered voters against proposing, seconding or witnessing for more than one candidate.

The district assembly and unit committee elections will be held on December 17.
