Electoral Register - Statement from the British High Commission

British High Commission's statement on Ghana's electoral register.

BHC
British High Commission Accra

We are disappointed that certain media outlets continue to report inaccurately the British Government’s views, and have wilfully misrepresented what we have said. Ghana’s voter register is a domestic issue for Ghana’s Electoral Commission to consider with political parties. There has been a full and public debate on the current register and the Electoral Commission recently published a report on this.

The British Government is clear that the forthcoming elections in Ghana are a sovereign, domestic Ghanaian issue. We will remain entirely neutral and happily work with any democratically elected government.
