Jean Mensah Cannot Be Blamed For Election Violence – CDD



The Centre for Democratic Development Ghana – (CDD) has said the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah cannot be faulted for the election-related violence in 2020.

Speaking to Francis Abban on Starr FM, Thursday, the Senior Programs Officer at CDD-Ghana, Dr. Paul Nana Kwabena Aborampah Mensah stated that election coordination is not handled by either the EC or political heads.

Therefore, it has always come as a surprise to him how the Chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Governing Body, Jean Akukwei Mensah has consistently taken responsibility for responding to issues that do not fall under her mandate.

“The EC has consistently responded to issues that are beyond her mandate and that is why I was happy that for the first time, I heard our EC partly apportioning the responsibility to the appropriate authorities and that is how it should be.  Election management is a stakeholder issue. We have various stakeholders who play various roles to make it a success.”
