The Electoral Commission of Ghana has assured members of the security agencies and the general public that they are working towards resolving challenges with the ongoing Special Voters excercise.

The Special Voting which started today across the country has been characterised by complaints of missing names of security officers, media personnel and electoral officers on the Special Voters List.

However, the Commission in a statement released on Thursday said it is "working with the top hierarchy of the security agencies to resolve the problem as soon as possible."

"We urge the security personnel affected to remain calm. Appropriate arrangements will be made for them all to vote in this year's elections," the statement added.

The statement came in the wake of a meeting between the Electoral Commission chair, Charlotte Osei and the seven candidates contesting the presidential elections this morning about the challenges the EC is encountering in organising the special voting exercise.
