- Charlotte Osei has had her name removed from nominees of an international award
- Some Ghanaian advocates in the UK petitioned for her nomination
Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei, has been disqualified from the disqualified from the "2017 Chatham House Prize".
This was after a UK-based Ghanaian advocacy group CENAB-UK, petitioned the board of Chatham House to disqualify Charlotte Osei based on grounds of investigation of corruption filed against her by some workers of the EC.
Checks by YEN.com.gh show that Charlotte Osei was selected due to the peaceful elections in 2016 which saw President Akufo-Addo defeat incumbent President - John Mahama - by a close margin.
As a result of the above situation, Mrs. Charlotte Osei was disqualified, and "the 2017 Chatham House Prize" was finally given to President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, on 9th November, 2017.
The Chatham House Prize is mostly awarded to a person, persons or an organization that is deemed to have made the most significant contributions to the improvement of international relations in the previous year.
