Election Steering C'ttee not suspended - EC

Mr. Owusu Parry however, says “the committee remains in place until a contrary decision is made.”

Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei

A statement signed by the EC’s acting Director of Public Affairs, Christian Owusu Parry said the report making round in the media is untrue and must be disregarded by the general public.

After an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting held on Friday, media reports suggested that the EC had agreed to suspend the election committee after it emerged that some members of the committee were National Democratic Congress (NDC) members.

Below is the full statement from the EC

NATIONAL ELECTION STEERING COMMITTEE NOT SUSPENDED

The Electoral Commission’s attention has been drawn to reports in the media that the National Election Steering Committee has been suspended.

The Commission wishes to inform the public that the reports are erroneous and should be disregarded.

At the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting, held yesterday, 19th February, 2016 the Commission assured the stakeholders, after persistent calls for the Commission to reconsider the setting up of the Committee that it would meet and discuss the concerns raised and inform IPAC of its decision later.

This should not be misconstrued as a suspension of the Committee.

The Committee remains in place until a contrary decision is made.

Thank you.
