The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has called on the Ghana Police Service (GPS) to provide the public with updates on investigations conducted into election-related violence during the 2020 elections.
The call forms part of key recommendations in the 2020 post-election report issued by CODEO.
According to CODEO, the Police Service owed the public responsibility as to the status of investigations into the violence that occurred during the elections, adding that the request was in line with public accountability which, the Police must fulfill.
The report also urged the media and the general public to be circumspect in their discussions on the on-going 2020 elections petition hearings at the Supreme Court so as not to jeopardize legitimate processes of the Court.
“CODEO commends all candidates challenging election outcomes in the courts and further urges all candidates, political parties and their supporters to cooperate with the courts to determine the merits or otherwise of election petitions,” the report added.
