- The EC has debunked claims that auctioning cars to workers was illegal
- EC chair and her deputy have appeared before PAC to answer questions regarding the auction
It has emerged that workers if the electoral commission were given the chance of benefiting from a car auction in 2013 which saw them secure vehicles as low as 1000 cedis.
This was made known during a public accounts committee hearing which involved the EC boss, Charlotte Osei and her deputy chair, Amadu Sulley.
According to Amadu Sulley, the move formed part of efforts to boost the morale of workers especially those embarking on retirement.
According to the EC, the commission was only able to raise ¢83,000 from the said auction and that no breach of law was incurred.
The appearance by the EC chair and her deputy comes in the wake of controversies regarding a controversial petition of impeachment filed by alleged workers of the EC against their boss, Charlotte Osei.
Meanwhile, president of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo is documented to have forwarded the petition to the Chief Justice for further investigations.
