Report on the Validation of Cases of Electoral Violence Associated with Election 2020 Background

Since returning to constitutional democracy in 1992, Ghana has successfully organized eight
presidential and parliamentary elections. However, in Ghana’s election cycle, electoral violence remains protracted, adversely affecting lives and properties. Similar to the previous seven elections, victims in the electoral violence cases recorded in the 2020 elections are yet to get justice despite persistent calls from various organizations and the public for the Ghana Police Service/National Elections Security Task Force (GPS/NESTF) to speed up investigations and provide regular information to the public on the status of these cases.

There have also been calls for the speedy trial of the cases.which have been processed for court.
The Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), with support from the West Africa
Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP), is, therefore, tracking the status of electoral violence cases
recorded in the 2020 elections in 11 Constituencies in six (6) out of the 16 administrative regions in Ghana.

The goal of this project titled, Post-Elections Accountability on Elections Security, is to advocate
for the speedy resolution of all the cases to engender public trust in the security and criminal justice system and limit the tendency for potential reprisal attacks in future elections.
