The US Ambassador to Ghana describes the 2020 election as free and fair, urging stakeholders to settle disputes in court

“The United States expects that any electoral disputes would be resolved through established legal channels, in keeping with Ghana’s hard-earned reputation as a shining example of democracy in the region and across the world.”

The United States government has congratulated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his re-lection in the just ended 7 December elections.

A statement issued by the US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie Sullivan, described the just ended presidential and parliamentary elections as “free and fair”.

The statement, however, called on aggrieved parties in the just ended polls to resolve any electoral dispute in court.

“The United States expects that any electoral disputes would be resolved through established legal channels, in keeping with Ghana’s hard-earned reputation as a shining example of democracy in the region and across the world,” the statement said.

“The U.S. government stands ready to continue our strong partnership with the government and people of Ghana to advance our shared prosperity.”
