Posted on Apr-06 2017

The Coalition of Domestic Election observers (CODEO), with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), held a lessons-learned workshop from March 27 to 29, 2017 at the Aqua Safari Resort in Ada in the Greater Accra Region to assess the conduct of the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. The workshop brought together a diverse group of election stakeholders to a single platform to take stock of the conduct of the 2016 Presidential and General elections and draw valuable lessons for improving the conduct of future elections. The participants at the end of the three-day workshop, identified accomplishments and positive lessons learned from Election 2016 that must be applied to future elections, pointed out gaps/concerns in the electoral process and made recommendations covering the voter register, enforcing electoral laws, civic/voter education, politically affiliated vigilante groups, election results coalition, transmission, announcement and declaration, elections and campaign financing.
