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.

However, Nana Addo has called for a wider consultation with various stakeholders before appointing the EC Chairman.

Political parties have also called for a person with integrity and impeccable record of achievement in the public service to be appointed.

“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”.
