Mrs. Rebecca Kabukie Adjalo, a member of the Electoral Commission has revealed that the irregularities which occurred in the 2012  elections that landed it in the Supreme Court was due to the calibre of some of the officials used during the elections.

This she said was evident in the irregularities that were identified during the trial at the Supreme Court.

The Opposition led by Nana Akufo Addo, Jake Obetseybi Lamptey and Dr Mahamadu Bawumia petitioned the Supreme Court over widespread irregularities which took place in some polling centers during the 2012 Presidential elections.

According to her, “some of the officials filled the statutory forms by heart” and that amounted to the irregularities that were identified during the case.

“When you look at the caliber of the people that we recruited, most of them were headmasters, most of them were teachers and even through the interaction we had with them, those presiding officers that did not sign, there was nobody that I found below the status of a headmaster, so sometimes it is the nature and pressure of the work,” she stated.

Mrs Rebecca Kabukie Adjalo has entreated media practitioners to exercise extreme circumspection when reporting election related issues in order not to inflame passions in the country.

She said the media had played an indispensable role by educating the public on election activities as well as rules and regulations regulating the electoral process.

She, therefore, charged them to be abreast of the legislations regulating election so as to inform the public accurately.
