As Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan proceeds on retirement next month, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has advised the appointing authorities — the Council of State and the President to avoid appointing a partisan- focused chairman.

He said, “Such a delicate appointment must be done carefully, bearing in mind that the integrity of the Commission is what is at stake.”

“If they put up a partisan- focused person as the next Chairman for the EC, you can expect that there will not be peace, since no political party will tolerate any form of cheating,” he added.

He said with barely 18 months to the 2016 general election, good governance was being undermined by the inaction of the EC to effectively monitor the activities of political parties.

That, according to him, had resulted in the electorate not getting the best from the political parties.

He said the EC has so far registered and recognises 24 political parties, with a new kid on the political block, the United Progressive Party (UPP), currently awaiting final certification. 

“Many out of that number are either moribund or inactive, while some of them only surface during elections,” Dr. Nduom said.
