Countless pressure is mounting on Ghana's electoral commissioner, Charlotte Osei, to exit her post. This follows the EC's losing several court cases ever since she, Charlotte Osei, took office.
A former attorney general and citizen vigilante, Martin Amidu, has personally written to the EC boss demanding her resignation after describing her as incompetent and arrogant following the disqualification of 13 aspiring presidential candidates.
“It is amazing that the commissioner failed or refused to realize that her impunity in not complying with the Constitution and the law in disqualifying the aspiring candidates disclosed more about her failure as the head of the Electoral Commission than the ignorance or lack of attention on the part of the aspirants in filling the complex nomination forms designed by her office for the presidential elections,” Amidu fumed said.
Also, a senior law lecturer with the University of Ghana, Dr Opoku Adusei, argues that Charlotte Osei is "leading the EC astray" thus supporting calls for her immediate resignation.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Osei, remains unshaken by these pressures as she appeals the Supreme Court against the case ruled in favour of the PPP flagbearer, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom.
But should she resign, she will be the first ever EC boss in the political history of Ghana to exit her post weeks before a crucial general election.
