Dr. Afari Gyan cautions EC not to rush in introducing new technologies.

Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, a former Chairman of the Electoral Commission, has cautioned election observers to be mindful of the fact that election observation is not a fault-finding mission but a fact-finding activity.

He said a neutral stance facilitated collaboration between observer groups and election management bodies (EMBs) for the common purpose of achieving genuine democratic elections.

Dr Afari-Gyan gave the caution on Tuesday in his presentation at the West Africa Election Observers Network (WAEON) Conference in Accra.

The two-day Conference, on the theme: “The Increasing Role of Technology in Election Administration: Implications for Election Observer Groups,” is being organised by WAEON, in collaboration with the Centre for Democratic Development Ghana.
