Former Director of the Danquah Institute Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has said the new chair of the Electoral Commission is "affiliated to the ruling party."

Speaking on Joy FM's news analysis programme Newsfile, Saturday, the New Patriotic Party member said he knows Charlotte Osei personally and has no doubt in his mind the successor to Afari Gyan has political leanings to the governing National Democratic Congress.

"I am saying that for a fact," Otchere Darko insisted after a deep sweep of murmur from panelists on the show.

Her affiliation notwithstanding, the lawyer said "it is a wonderful opportunity for [Charlotte Osei] to show what she can do."

"I will not prejudge her based on her history with the NDC. We should judge her based on the remit of professionalism, fairness," he added.

The president in accordance with Article 70 (2) of the constitution appointed Mrs Charlotte Osei Thursday as new chair of the Electoral Commission. She takes over from Dr. Afari Gyan who went on retirement after supervising six elections.
