The Electoral Commission has dumped new logo instituted by the sacked Chairperson of the Commission, Charlotte Osei.

A memo signed by the newly appointed Chairperson, Jean Mensa said it has reverted to the old logo.

The memo stated: "Effective December 4, 2018, the original logo of the Electoral Commission which bears the Coat of Arms and has a ballot box showing the hand casting its vote, has been restored."

It added that "The core values of the Electoral Commission, namely integrity, fairness and accountability have from today also been restored.

"All communications from the electoral commission must from today be made on the letterhead bearing the original logo of the commission as appears on the face of this letterhead…"

The new logo, which appeared in place of EC's original logo, had generated a lot of debate amongst the public with some suggesting that the Commission must not change the original one.

The EC came under fire for changing the logo, which originally had the country's coat of arms.


Many also accused the Commission of plagiarism, pointing to a Turkish company which had a similar logo. But Charlotte Osei while addressing the media and stakeholders at the event said, her outfit is happy with its new logo.
