Newly inaugurated Presidential debate C'tee promises successful contest

Speaking at the inauguration, a senior fellow at the IEA, Prof Atsu Ayee, said that the committee would be in charge of the conduct of the debates, including moderator and question selection.


The committee, which will be chaired by former first Vice President of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Prof Akua Kuenyehia will also perform other roles related to the November polls.

The Chairman of the committee, Prof Kuenyehia said "Together we [committee] will work hard to ensure a successful debate".

The IEA said the Presidential Encounters which will precede the Presidential Debates will from next Tuesday, June 21, 2016 feature the PNC flagbearer, Dr. Edward Mahama.

Flag bearers of the opposition New Patriotic Party and Convention People’s Party are expected to partake in the presidential evening encounters.

The ruling National Democratic Congress is likely to pull out as it raised misgivings from the start about the approach being adopted by the IEA for this year’s presidential debate.
