The Electoral Commission of Ghana has restored its old logo which bears the Coat of Arms and has a ballot box showing a hand casting its vote.
In a statement released on December 4, 2018, it read “From effective December 4, 2018, the original logo of the Electoral Commission which bears the coat of arms and has a ballot box showing the hand casting its vote has been restored.”The core values of the Electoral Commission, namely integrity, Fairness and Accountability have from today also been restored.”
“All communications from the Electoral Commission must from today, be made on the letterhead bearing the original logo of the Commission as appears on the face of this letterhead. Reams of letterheads are to be picked up from the stores of the Commission,” it said.
“Kindly ensure that the most recent logo is removed from the buildings and properties of the Commission. This will subsequently be replaced.”
“Let the bells of Accountability, Fairness and Integrity ring throughout the Commision. May God bless us all. Thank you,” it concluded.
The memo was copied to all commissioners, Head Office Directors, Regional Directors, Deputy Regional Directors, District Electoral Officers and Sectional Heads.
The change of logo was effected under the administration of former EC boss Charlotte Osei in 2016.
The new logo had a dark-blue background with round coloured circles in shades of green, yellow, white, and red.
