2024 polls: CDD-Ghana forms Media for Electoral Reform Forum

The Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) and the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO), have formed a media forum to champion electoral reforms that will improve integrity, transparency, and peaceful elections in Ghana.

According to CDD-Ghana, the Media for Electoral Reform Forum (MERF) will spearhead the selection and capacity-building workshops for journalists on the proposed electoral reforms and support advocacy campaigns ahead of the general elections in December 2024.

“The MERF seeks to build the capacities of journalists and create platforms for media practitioners to discuss and advocate for electoral reforms in the following areas: election results management, parliamentary election petition adjudication, and affirmative action.

“On Thursday, November 9, 2023, CDD-Ghana and CODEO convened an initial meeting at the Airport West Hotel in Accra to foster a common understanding among journalists on key issues of electoral reforms in Ghana and best practices from other African countries,” CDD-Ghana disclosed in a press release.

The release continued: “As part of cultivating the media as capable allies in advancing advocacy on the proposed reforms, two zonal (Northern and Southern) capacity-building workshops will be held for 70 selected media practitioners from across the country.”
