Nana Akufo-Addo has called for a broader consultation before appointing a new EC Chairman.
The Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged President John Mahama to appoint a successor to Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan who will restore confidence in the Electoral Commission.
The Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Afari Gyan is set for retirement in June after heading the EC for 22 years.

“There is a need for a wider consultation in the appointment of the new EC boss,” Nana Addo said, adding “we need someone who will restore confidence in the EC”.
