Voters’ Register: Gamey & Co ADR Centre Want To Help Resolve NPP, NDC Fight
LISTEN FEB 17, 2020

The Gamey & Co Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre has offered to mediate between the Electoral Commission (EC) and the opposition political parties on the proposed new voters’ register which has generated controversies.

The Centre in a statement said the matter if not handled with care “has the potential of disturbing the peace and security of the nation” and so it has become important to find an amicable solution immediately.

It said the matter requires that a professional mediation body intervenes to help resolve the matter hence the decision to offer its services in this regard.

In a statement, Gamey & Co ADR Centre said it is proposing February 24, 2020, to hold a pre-mediation meeting with the stakeholders including the Electoral Commission, before holding a plenary session the following day.

It said it has already informed the Electoral Commission about its preparedness to take up the service.

“In this regard, the Gamey & Co ADR Centre has offered to conduct a Facilitated Mediation which would help the Electoral Commission and the political parties concerned to reach an agreement. Accordingly, the Centre has officially notified the Electoral Commission and the parties concerned of the offer, and the Centre is awaiting their response,” it said in a statement.

Read the full statement below:

As a result of the position taken by the Electoral Commission and the opposing Political Parties on the proposed new voters' register which has generated controversy and political tension in the country, and which, if not handled with much care, the impasse has the potential of disturbing the peace and security of the nation, it has become necessary for stakeholders to reach an amicable solution.

There is therefore, the need for a professional mediation body to intervene to assist the two sides to resolve the matter.

In this regard, the Gamey & Co ADR Centre has offered to conduct a Facilitated Mediation which would help the Electoral Commission and the political parties concerned to reach an agreement.

Accordingly, the Centre has officially notified the Electoral Commission and the parties concerned of the offer, and the Centre is awaiting their response.

Subject to their approval, the Centre has proposed February 24, 2020 to hold the Pre-Mediation Meeting with the respective stakeholders and the plenary session the following day.

Based on our longstanding experience and expertise, we are convinced that the mediation would enable the two sides to effectively address their interests and concerns for a solution that should be mutually beneficial to them and the entire nation.

We offer the mediation as our corporate social responsibility to mother Ghana, and trust that the Electoral Commission and the concerned parties, who are interested in a peaceful electoral process, would accept the mediation intervention.

We have high confidence in the two sides to make it happen.
