The team was in Liberia since October 22, 2020, working with the NEC Data Centre, as well as the UNDP consultants attached to the centre.
This is in line with provisions of Article 14 of the Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance as well as Article 53(c) of the ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework which is aimed at ensuring a credible and a free and fair electoral process in member countries.
President Akufo-Addo sacked Osei as the chairperson of the EC together with her two deputies two years earlier.
