He said the elections management body has made several reviews as part of the ongoing restructuring process.

The commission has undertaken several review activities and I can say even on authority that within the shortest possible time; at most within three months, we should have a well-functioning communications unit,” Dr. Bossman told Accra-based Citi FM.

Even [when] you go to IT, procurement, legal [departments] – there are several places we are looking at so some of it, when we conclude, they will be made public for you to have the full information,” he added.

Reports suggest some key personnel at the EC Headquarters will be transferred out as part of the restructuring.

The Commission’s Director of Finance, Joseph Kwaku Asamoah is expected to be moved to the Ashanti Region to head the Commission’s Training Centre there.

Meanwhile, the current Head of Communication for the Commission, Eric Kofi Dzakpasu is also expected to be moved to the Volta Region as Regional Director.
