Mr David Kanga, a Deputy Chairman of the Electoral Commission (EC), has cautioned media practitioners to be circumspect in their reportage in order to ensure peaceful polls on December 7, 2008.
He appealed to the media to cross check their facts about any electoral process from the right officers of the EC before going public.
Mr Kanga made the appeal when he addressed journalists from the Eastern Region at a capacity building and sensitization seminar in Koforidua on Tuesday.
He said the EC was doing everything possible to ensure that this year's elections were conducted in an atmosphere of peace devoid of suspicion from any political party so that the outcome would be accepted by all.
Mr Kanga urged the media to educate the electorate on some of the electoral processes to make the work of the EC very easy.
He said the EC was putting measures in place to avoid shortage of election materials on the Election Day.
He expressed worry about pronouncements of some political leaders, which could undermine the credibility of the EC and urged all parties to channel their grievances to the office of the Commission for redress.
Mr Kanga said elections were won at the polling station centres and therefore urged the various parties to ensure that well-trained agents were sent to monitor the process and also to be vigilant.
He assured that enough security measures had been put in place on the Election Day to forestall unwanted behaviour from any quarters.
