Media must refrain from declaring election results – GJA

Accra, Dec. 09, GNA – The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) on Wednesday cautioned the media to desist from calling the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.

The GJA in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra said the declaration of the election results was the constitutional mandate of the Electoral Commission (EC) and they had the sole mandate to do that.

The GJA stressed that the mandate of the media was to provide vent for the EC to discharge its duty.

“The media must endeavour to report the certified results declared by the EC without arrogating to themselves the mandate to make such declarations.

“The GJA advises the media that the desire to get the people informed should not lure them into exercising powers they do not hold in respect of the declaration of election results,” they said.

The Association urged the media to use their platforms to cool down tension and calm the nerves of Ghanaians as the nation awaits the result declaration by the EC.

“The GJA believes at this critical moment, the media must play a constructive role rather than inflame passion or act in an untoward manner that may lead to the disturbance of the peace.

“After the declaration of the results, the media must focus on and promote the acceptance of the results by all and the need to foster national unity,” they said.
