The Minority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has disclosed that, the Electoral Commission of Ghana currently has no integrity, hence it should focused on recapturing its lost integrity.
However, recent developments at the EC have created doubts on the minds of many Ghanaians about the said integrity Jane Mensah restored
“It is absolutely troubling and shocking that in the face of such a pandemic, our government chooses to supply PPE to officials of the Electoral Commission when doctors, nurses and other frontline healthcare workers are crying for PPE”, the Tamale South MP said.
“All these come at a time the EC’s plan to begin its infamous and life-threatening registration in June this year, has been exposed after a presentation the EC made to ECOWAS leaked. It is worth noting that the EC’s timetable, as presented to ECOWAS, remains unknown to Parliament and opposition political parties,” Mr Iddrisu added.
In its response to the Minority, however, the EC said contrary to the claims of the Minority Leader, “it has not stated anywhere that it has received personal protective equipment (PPE) from the government”, stressing: “For the avoidance of doubt, the Commission has not received any protective equipment from the government.”
