Appointment of EC Chair should be subjected to parliamentary approval - Minister Designate for Parliamentary Affairs

Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, Minister-designate for Parliamentary Affairs says the appointment of the EC Chair should be subjected to parliamentary approval.

He said, this task is very important and must be approved by two- thirds of the members of Parliament.

During Mr. Mensah Bonsu’s vetting at the Parliament he made the assertion that if the EC was to be selected by two thirds of members of Parliament, this will make the President be consultative in selecting the Commissioner of the electoral body.

The NDC is currently undermining the EC at Court just as the NPP did against Charlotte Osei, both parties are guilty he said.

Mr. Mensah Bonsu hinted that, there should be a solution out to depart from these attacks since it would not help in the progress of the country.
