A statement issued at the annual joint meeting Thursday signed by Most Rev. Joseph Osei-Bonsu, President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference and Rt. Rev. Professor Emmanuel Martey of the Christian Council said, “Pertinent issues such as the Voters’ Register, Biometric verification, creation of constituencies, among others, need to be addressed now.”

"We seek to know what the plans are for the suspended District Assembly elections as well as the road map for Ghana’s General Elections in 2016.

"We propose that the Electoral Commission should begin in earnest the process of engagement with all stakeholders on the way forward for these elections.

"Pertinent issues such as the Voters’ Register, Biometric verification, creation of constituencies, among others, need to be addressed now.

"Related critical issues include the needed reforms to Ghana’s electoral system as per the various recommendations and the early and transparent appointment of a new Chairman of the Electoral Commission.

It added that, "The year 2016 may seem far but it is not. Thus, we appeal to the EC to act expeditiously."
