- Franklin Cudjoe is hesitant to believe the EC's problems just have to do with a change in leadership
President of IMANI President, Franklin Cudjoe has given a word of advice to the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson nominee, Jean Mensa to seek from the experience of the immediate past EC boss, Charlotte Osei.
Speaking on Citi FM's according to citinewsroom.com, Mr Cudjoe indicated that he did not expect the problems at the EC to quiet down with Ms Mensa's coming. However, he believes that understanding the problems is a requirement to solving them.
For Ms Mensa to calm down the problems at the commission, she would need to understand how it is to run the commission.
Cudjoe reportedly said: “She should look to what happened to Charlotte and be guided but it."
"I encourage her [Jean Mensa] to speak to Charlotte.”
Jean Mensa is the former executive director of the Institute of Economic Affairs, (IEA). She was nominated as the new Chairperson after a turbulent period at the Commission that saw Charlotte Osei being sacked by President Akufo-Addo.
The cases brought against Charlotte Osei included those accusations of financial embezzlement. However, since her removal others including Abdul-Malki Kweku Baako, have taken the president on in court.
Mr. Cudjoe noted that he did not expect the sources of the turbulence at the EC to disappear with the nomination of the new EC Chairperson.
