According to him, the claims are false, and his legal counsel was currently advising him on the best way forward.

In a report by Starr FM, the EC staffer said Madam Charlotte Osei’s allegations have no basis, as he has legal documents to back his earlier claims.

He was reacting to the accusations thrown at him by the EC chair, that he has misappropriated funds in the institution.

The Deputy Chairperson Operations collected funds above GHS6m (Six million Ghana cedis) in cash from some political parties for the organization of party primaries without recourse to the structures of the Commission, and without the involvement of the finance department of the Commission. Political party primaries were treated as a private commercial project by the Deputy Chairperson Ops, with funds paid directly into the personal accounts of key staff for functions to be performed for party primaries,” Charlotte Osei stated.

Charlotte Osei further alleged that the Mr. Sulley “persistently instructed officials to carry out illegal vote transfers on the Voter management System in clear breach of the law and operational policies of the Commission.”

This according to the EC Chair, was a clear sign of abuse of office, and compromised the integrity of the institution.

Meanwhile, the EC boss has disclosed the country was nearly plunged into a civil war by the main parties in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) before, and during the elections.

Charlotte Osei said she had to immediately step in to constantly get in touch with the presidential candidates of both parties as a Returning Officer during the elections - a move, she believes, saved the country from chaos.
