The Convention People’s Party says the new chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs. Charlotte Osei should immediately engage all political parties to reassure them of restoring the credibility of the commission.

The CPP in a statement, congratulated Mrs. Osei and indicated the need for her to ensure transparency in the operations of the electoral body.

Mrs. Osei who until her appointment, was the Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) takes over from retired Kwadwo Afari Gyan who has held the position for over 20 years.

Below is the full statement of the CPP

The CPP is happy to note that the long speculation on the appointment of a successor to Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan as EC chairman has ended.

We wish to firstly applaud Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan for his contribution to Ghana’s democracy.

He had successfully managed a change in government from NDC to NPP and from NPP to NDC and we hope that his successor will successfully manage a change from NDC to CPP.

We congratulate Mrs. Osei on her new role and welcome the fact that a woman will for the first in our history take on the role.

President Mahama had not consulted other parties widely as we would have liked which would have been the best way forward at this stage in our democratic history but we hope now that Mrs. Osei would move speedily to call an IPAC meeting to discuss and re-assure all political parties on the essentials for a successful EC, transparency in its operations, more and better consultation, strengthening EC, respect and credibility.

It’s an opportunity for Mrs. Osei to chart a new course for the EC in partnership with all stakeholders.
