Akufo-Addo refers petitions against 2 EC deputy chairs to CJ

President Akufo-Addo has referred two petitions against Deputy Chairpersons of the Electoral Commission, Ms. Georgina Opoku Amankwa and Mr. Amadu Sulley to the Chief Justice, Justice Sophia Akuffo.

A similar petition against the chairperson of the Election Management Body Charlotte Osei is also before the Chief Justice.

Mrs. Osei, whose managerial skills and competence are being challenged by some faceless staff of the EC, is at loggerheads with her two deputies over alleged financial malfeasance.

 

Below is the full press statement announcing the referral of the latest petitions to the chief justice:

 

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has , on Friday, 28th July, 2017, referred two petitions invoking the provisions of Article 146(3) of the Constitution, in respect of the office of the Deputy Chairpersons of the Electoral Commission, Ms. Georgina Opoku Amankwa and Mr. Amadu Sulley, respectively, to the Chief Justice, Justice Sophia Akuffo.

The office of the President received the two petitions, both dated 25th July, 2017, from Emmanuel Korsi Senyo, who described himself as a “Concerned Citizen of Ghana.”

President Akufo-Addo, pursuant to the terms of Article 146(3), has, thus, referred both petitions to the Chief Justice for resolution, in accordance with the provisions of Article 146(3).
