The convener of Justice for Ghana, a pressure group, Dramani Selorm Dzramado, has made the claim that the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Jean Adukwei Meansa, has a warped understanding of the functions of the Electoral Commission stipulated in the Constitution of Ghana.

According to him “It has become glaringly clear to the public that the lawyer, Jean Mensa, doesn’t have a thorough understanding of some of the legal principles she has been schooled in while having her law studies”.

He made this claim when he spoke on A1 Radio`s Daybreak Upper East show on the sidelines of the pressure group`s sit-in at the office of the Electoral Commission on Friday, September 22, 2023, in demand for the commission`s compliance with Article 45E of the constitution.

Sit-in is a type of manifestation embarked on by citizens to show their dissatisfaction and displeasure with happenings.

Mr. Dzramado said the  group has seen the need to inculcate in the chairperson the constitutional principles to enable her to start complying with the provisions.

He said ”this is so important and critical to deepening the country’s democracy that is under attack  by an autocratic leader using democratic institutions to kill democracy”.

The convener emphasized that the sit-in is to drive home the demand for the EC to comply with Article 45E of the constitution, which mandates the EC to undertake programmes for the expansion of the voter`s register, which it does not have the liberty or latitude to do otherwise.
