    [04] Commissioners Ferrero-Waldner and Michel on the Presidential Elections in Ghana

    Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy said: “I am pleased to congratulate the people of Ghana for reconfirming their strong commitment to the democratic process in their country. I would like to pay tribute to the efficient and transparent way in which the authorities conducted these elections. This is essential to ensure a credible election process. As the final stages of the presidential elections are now being undertaken, I call on all parties who may have complaints to submit these through the relevant legal channels. I also would like to thank again Nickolay Mladenov, MEP, Chief Observer of the EU Election Observation Mission and his entire team for their hard work and commitment.” Louis Michel, Commissioner for Development, added: “The peaceful and orderly conduct of this second round of the presidential elections in Ghana confirms the strength of the Ghanaian democratic system and the resolve of Ghanaians to remain a shining example of democracy in Africa. The European Commission remains engaged with Ghana and will continue to support the country's democratic and economic development in line with the Ghana country strategy."
