No Plans To Oust EC Boss -Presidency

Published in politics Tuesday, 01 August 2017 11:57

President Akufo-Addo does not intend to replace the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei according to Eugene Arhin, Communication's Director at the Presidency.

This follows a warning the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) gave to the President concerning the EC boss.

The NDC has warned President Akufo-Addo to stop his plan of ousting Madam Charlotte Osei following internal wrangling at the commission.

Speaking at a press conference, the Minority Leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, cautioned that, President Akufo-Addo’s blackmailing attempt of Madam Osei in order to impose another person on the EC, will be met will fierce resistance from the opposition members.

“Stay off and stop intruding into the operations and activities of the EC, the NDC has tolerated the NPP hounding out Civil Servants from office since assumption of power,” he said.

However, speaking in an interview on Okay FM’s morning show ‘Ade Akye Abia’, Monday, Eugene Arhin said the President has no intention of replacing the EC boss.

"He has no plans of replacing Madam Charlotte Osei . . . he has only forwarded the petitions he received to the Chief Justice to see if a prima facie case can be established,” he explained.

President Akufo-Addo has referred two petitions against Deputy Chairpersons of the Electoral Commission, Ms. Georgina Opoku Amankwa and Mr. Amadu Sulley to the Chief Justice, Justice Sophia Akuffo.

The president referred both petitions to the Chief Justice for resolution, in accordance with the provisions of Article 146(3).

Prior to this, a similar petition against the chairperson of the commission, Charlotte Osei was also referred to the Chief Justice.
