Election 2012: Officials begin training today

Officials who will be in charge of the December 2012 polls will commence training on Friday, 16th November, 2012.

According to Chairman of the Electoral Commission (EC), Dr Kwadwo Afari Djan, who made the revelation, “we are training them in smaller groups so that the training is hands-on and not instructional,” he said.

“Most of the important training is being done in batches of 20 so that we can supervise everybody in the practical,” he added.

Speaking to Citi News, Mr. Afari Gyan also assured Ghanaians that there be will be no shortage of ballot papers at polling centers come December 7.

“When we print ballot papers, we add 10% and since we do not split ballot papers, we are printing in denominations of 100s, 50s and 25s so when a polling station is 102, we will give them 125 ballot sheets so there should be no shortage of ballot papers at any station,” he said.
