Listen to article

Ghanaians living outside the country say they will not hesitate to seek the necessary legal recourse to compel the Electoral Commission to ensure the implantation of the Representation of the People's Amendment Act in the 2008 elections.

The Diaspora Vote Committee, a recognized representative of Ghanaians resident abroad made the call at a press conference in Accra on Wednesday.

The press conference comes as a follow up to the group's presentation of recommendations to the Electoral Commission as part of their contribution to the smooth running of the 2008 elections.

A member of the Committee, Prof. Kwame Frimpong said the constitution must be upheld, as Ghanaians living outside the country have a vested interest in the progress of the country and will therefore do everything within their means to ensure the realization of the nation's developmental aspirations.

Prof. Frimpong commended the Electoral Commission and pledged the Committee's commitment to a peaceful electoral process and support for all activities leading up to the 2008 elections.
