EC Job: Charlotte’s dismissal, Jean’s nomination “regrettable” – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has described as regrettable, the removal of Mrs Charlotte Osei and subsequent nomination of Mrs Jean Mensa as Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana.

“Current controversy surrounding removal of EC Chair and deputies and subsequent appointment of new commissioners is regrettable and carries a potential to erode Ghana’s democratic credentials,” Mr Mahama posted on his Facebook Wall on Tuesday, 24 July 2018.

Mr Mahama, who is on an observer mission in Zimbabwe, attached a photo of himself and Ghana’s former EC Chair Dr Afari Gyan, and wrote that he was “proud to serve on the same mission with the highly-respected former EC Chair, Kwadwo Afari Gyan, who for almost two decades established Ghana’s worldwide reputation for credible election management”.

 
President Nana Akufo-Addo, on Monday 23 July 2018, named Mrs Jean Mensa, Executive Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), as the new Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana.

The newly-appointed deputies are a political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Eric Asare Bossman; and Samuel Tettey, Director of Electoral services in charge of elections at the Electoral Commission. Also Ms Adjoa Esuama Abrefa, a corporate legal practitioner with specialisation in land property acquisition, was named as a member of the commissioner.
