- His comments follows decision by the EC to constitute the controversial 18-member steering committee
Minister in charge of the Dzorwulu Circuit of the Methodist Church of Ghana, Rt. Rev Stephen Richard Bosomtwe-Ayensu has argued that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Charlotte Osei is conspiring to impose President Mahama on Ghanaians after the November 7th elections.
Commenting on the decision by the EC to constitute an 18-member steering committee ahead of the 2016 elections, Rt. Rev Stephen Richard Bosomtwe-Ayensu advised that the Commission must consult with the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) and other stakeholders.
The EC chair cannot appoint the president for the people but the people must rather choose their leader. The current posture of the EC seems to portray that the Commission wants to impose the sitting President on us,” he emphasised.
