Electoral Commission infighting deepens

The infighting that has rocked the Electoral Commission (EC) is taking a new twist following the decision by one of the Deputy Chairpersons on interdiction, Georgina Opoku Amankwaah – in charge of Corporate Services at the commission – to resume work.

The latest development is likely to spark another heated political debate over the manner in which the electoral body is being managed.

DAILY GUIDE understands that lawyers for Ms. Opoku Amakwaah had asked their client to resume work in defiance of Economic and Organised Crime Office’s (EOCO’s) directive that she stays out of work to allow investigations into the alleged misappropriation of the commission’s Staff Endowment Fund.

In July last year, Ms. Opoku Amankwaah, together with two EC officials – Kwaku Owusu Agyei-Larbi, Chief Accountant and Dr Joseph Asamoah, a Finance Director – were asked to proceed on leave over a missing GH¢480,000 from the Staff Endowment Fund, after the EC boss, Mrs. Charlotte Osei, had asked EOCO to investigate the matter.
