The Head of the European Union (EU), Ambassador Claude Maerten has praised Ghana for its democratic credentials, saying the country has been recognized worldwide as the beacon of democracy in Africa.

The Ambassador made the observation when he paid a working visit to the Upper West Region of Ghana to hold discussions with the regional authorities and officials of the Electoral Commission and the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) on decentralisation issues and the preparation of the 2012 general elections.

He said it was for these reasons that the EU found it necessary to support the EC and NCCE, especially with the introduction of the new Biometric Voter system to enable them to come out with a credible biometric voter register.
