NMC Releases Mobile App On Election Incidence Monitoring And Disinformation

The National Media Commission (NMC) has released its Mobile App to monitor election incidence and disinformation during and after the 2020 general elections.

According to the Commission, as part of measures to contain hate speech and disinformation, the National Media Commission has today released its election watch app (Android version) to help with election incidence reporting.

In a statement signed by the Executive Secretary, Mr. George Sarpong and copied Todaygh.com, states that in addition to the App, the Commission has begun a process to expedite consideration of concerns relating to hate speech, disinformation and incitement from aggrieved persons.

“Matters brought before the Commission will therefore be dealt with under the broad constitutional mandate of the Commission to ensure high journalistic standards and not necessarily under the formal Complaints Settlement process” the statement noted.

It said the idea of the introduction of the App is to deal with matters within (48) forty-eight hours upon submission to the Commission.
