Mrs. Jean Mensa, Electoral Commission (EC) chairperson has denied all the rumors saying that the president Akufo-Addo has influenced the Electoral Commission and called the Chairperson and directed her what to do r what to do not.
She said that the electoral commission is an independent institution which is working independently within the constitution of Ghana and no one can influence us not even the president himself.
Mrs. Mensa, who has been in chief of the commission since August 2018, stated that the president had never directed to the commission how to carry out its mission, saying that they had achieved complete independence in their work.
Accompanied by other representatives, the EC president said “they valued the independence and trust” that president mentioned a year earlier and pledged to perform their task to the finest of their ability.
Meanwhile, Nana Akufo-Addo has stated he does not need the support of the EC to win an election, suggesting he will be contesting for a second term in 2020 on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party.
“I don’t want to win the elections with the help of the Electoral Commission I am going to win the election because people of Ghana know that the Akufo-Addo is their only choice,” President said.
