The US Ambassador to Ghana, H.E Stephanie Sullivan on the Citi Breakfast Show on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 shared with Bernard Avle the peculiarities of America’s 2020 elections and how the electoral processes have been so far.
Among other things, she noted that the outbreak of COVID-19 which has affected every country of the world may have led to the rise in the number of early votes.
She added that whoever emerges winner of the American elections will represent the interest of the American people despite the differences in approach with leadership.

“In the United States, we always have the voice of the people represented by the elected president… Any American president is going to look at putting the interest of the American people and our country above all and that has always been the case. There may be difference in approach,” she noted.
