The office of the President through her Chief of Staff,  Hon. Akosua Frema-Opare nominated four people to fill the vacuum created at the Electoral Commission (EC) on Monday, July 23, 2018.

The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has by letter dated, Thursday, 19th July, 2018 sought the advice of the Council of State, in accordance with Article 70(2) of the Constitution, for the appointment of a new Chairperson, two Deputy Chairpersons, and a Member of the EC.

This follows the removal from office, on Thursaday, 28th June, 2018, of the former Chairperson of the EC, Mrs. Charlotte Osei, and the two deputies, Mr. Amadu Sulley and Mrs. Georgina Opoku Amankwah, by President Akufo-Addo, after the committee established by the Chief Justice, Justice Sophia Akuffo, to investigate petitions brought against them, recommended their removal. Further, the retirement from office of Mr. Pauline Dadzawa, a Member of the Commission, on Monday, 30th April 2018, has created an additional vacancy in the Commission.

The following persons have, thus, been nominated for the appointment by the President to fill these vacancies, subject to the advice of the Council of State:
1. Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa – Chairperson
2. Mr. Samuel Tettey – Deputy Chairperson
3. Dr. Eric Asare Bossman – Deputy Chairperson
4. Ms. Adwoa Asuama Abrefa – Member of the Commission

President Akufo-Addo is hopeful that the Council of State will discharge its constitutional duty expeditiously, to enable him to make these critical appointments of this very important institution of State.
