He stated, “Democracies are grounded on viable elections, and, this year, like we have done on eight (8) other preceding occasions, we will go to the polls to elect the President and my successor. No true democrat can disregard the importance of elections and the sanctity of the ballot.”

In preparation for the December 7 elections, Akufo-Addo emphasized that guaranteeing fair and transparent elections should be the top concern for all Ghanaians.

He emphasized, “It must, thus, be in our collective interest to ensure that the rules and regulations for the conduct of this year’s elections are fair and transparent and that we all develop respect for them, a respect that should not be a function of whether you win or lose.”

This call was delivered by the president during an address marking the 30th anniversary of the Fourth Republic.

He asked all stakeholders, including the Electoral Commission, political parties and their leaders, voters, and residents, to work together to strengthen Ghanaian democracy and maintain the country’s image as an African democracy model.

Akufo-Addo finished by highlighting the significance of removing questions about the legality of the election and encouraged victorious candidates to receive unflinching support from everybody in order to enhance democracy and safeguard the nation’s peace and security.
