Accra, April 6, GNA - The Electoral Commission says it is working with the Finance Ministry to ensure that monies due its 2020 field operatives are paid by the end of April, 2021.

"The Commission regrets the delay in effecting the payments and assures all Field Operatives that arrangements are being made to ensure the timely release of funds," it said in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, on Tuesday.
