ASEPA demands immediate resignation of EC chair

Policy think tank, Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) is demanding the immediate resignation of the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean  Mensa.

ASEPA says if the EC boss fails to do the needful, it will be forced to petition the President to sack her for breaching a constitutional mandate to declare her assets upon resumption of office.

 

 

 

The demand follows investigations by the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice, CHRAJ, that found the EC Chair, guilty for non-disclosure of assets and liabilities, a mandatory requirement for all public officials (Article 71 Office Holders).

“Jean Mensah took office on the 1st August, 2018 and as at the time we filed our petition on the 12th December 2019 , 16months after taking office had failed to comply with the provisions of Article 286,” ASEPA said in a statement.
