The opposition NDC has issued a statement rejecting the nomination of Mrs, Jean Adukwei Mensah as the electoral commission chairperson.
NDC DISAPPOINTED AT THE CHOICE OF JEAN MENSAH AS THE CHARIPERSON OF THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION
The NDC received the news about the appointment of Mrs. Jean Mensah as a chairperson of the electoral commission by H.E The president with shock and disbelief.
We are shocked because until this appointment the president had given assurance to the nation that the person to be appointed into the commission would be persons whose integrity and political neutrality would be above board.
For president Akuffo Addo to proceed contrary to his earlier assurances to appoint a known pro-NPP and an avowed anti NDC person like MRS JEAN MENSAH to chair a commission which would organize elections involving NDC and NPP as the main contenders defies all senses of decency, fairness and justice and amounts to a gross abuse of the discretionary powers of appointment vested in him by the constitution of the republic of Ghana
The party would in due course provide further and better particulars of the open and covert activities of Jean Mensah which makes her unfit to occupy the high position of chairperson of the electoral commission of the republic of Ghana.
