Accra, Jan.11, GNA – Mrs Charlotte Osei, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, (EC), has given the assurance that, the Commission would be delivering credible elections in this year’s presidential and parliamentary polls.

She said the EC is committed to provide transparent, inclusive and credible elections and it is working hard to make that vision comes into reality.

Mrs Osei made this known at a news briefing organised by the Institute of Democratic Governance in Accra at the instance of the Kofi Annan Foundation’s Electoral Integrity Initiative.

She said the Commission would continue to uphold the rule of law and create a level playing field for all the political parties.
