Gene A. Cretz, outgoing US Ambassador to Ghana has urged the country to consider an overhaul of its electoral systems and take steps to reshape the flaws.

Cretz said what Ghana had to proudly show to the rest of the world with its elections will be of no use if she is not able to maintain a stronger system.

Speaking to journalists at his last roundtable press engagement held at the United States Embassy in Accra on Tuesday he said:

“Take a look at the electoral campaign mechanism itself; What was the problem last time, take a look at it and make sure that during this election that you don’t have this charge and counter charge which really kind of diminishes the incredible importance and prestige that Ghana shows to the world when it has an election”.
