The Coalition for Media Reforms Africa (CMRA), is calling on all media stakeholders, particularly members of the Ghana Journalist’s Association (GJA) to exercise their oversight responsibility as watch-dogs of society to ensure freedom, fairness and credibility in the upcoming elections of the Association.

The elections, we understand, is slated for Friday, June 24, 2022, and would be held across the “10 Regions of Ghana” before the creation of the additional six regions.

It would be held at their respective polling stations. We are expecting nothing but a credible election that would be acceptable to all.

In the spirit accountability, the Coalition wish to put on record that it has noted some concerns raised by the various aspirants for the positions being contested, particularly on the dilemma of  the voters register and hopes that such grievances will be addressed using the GJA’s internal structures in accordance with the GJA’s Constitution (2004).

The three Aspirants for GJA president

As a coalition with keen interest in  media reforms in Africa, we urge all participating members of the GJA to show up in their numbers and vote for competent leadership that can contribute to structural internal reforms; and to elevate the status-quo of the GJA at National and Regional levels.
We owe it a duty as an Association to maintain the sanctity and dignity of the upcoming elections while deepening the country’s democracy.

We wish to commend the Aspirants, outgoing Executives, Elections Dispute Adjudication Committee (EDAC), Election Committee (EC), and the Election Supervisory Committee (ESC) for rejuvenating the elections after stalled  processes in 2021. We wish all aspirants the best of luck in the elections.
