The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor says it’ll be in the interest of both the NPP and NDC if the Chairperson of Electoral Commission (EC) is subjected to Parliamentary approval.
Speaking on Joy FM he said both parties have bemoaned the appointment EC Chairpersons by a ruling party.
“We [NDC] are saying, let’s tighten the knot so that we will not have the case where in future, we will have another President who will be abusive, authoritarian like President Akufo-Addo. So that, that person will not come and take advantage of the process,” Peter Otokunor said.
“If you look at the recommendations that we are making, they are just over simplifying the fact that NDC has appointed 2 ECs so they have appointed one so it’s 2:1 which certainly goes beyond who appointed ECs and the number of ECs that we have appointed,” he added.
