The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa, and her deputies — Dr Eric Bossman Asare and Mr Samuel Tettey, have filed a suit at the Supreme Court, over a petition by the #FixTheCountry Movement demanding their removal from office.
It comes on the back of the movement’s petition to the President to have the leadership of the electoral management body relieved of their post over the inability of the residents of Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) to vote for a representative in Parliament in the 2020 general election.
Joined to the suit as first, second and third defendants are: Convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the Chief Justice and Attorney General.
The EC suit is to stop ongoing impeachment proceedings against the trio.
Mr Barker-Vormawor in a January 10, Facebook update, shared a press statement indicating that he together with 45 others had petitioned the Presidency demanding the removal of the said officials for their failure to organise parliamentary elections for residents of Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL).
But in an interview with Top News, Benjamin Darko; a convenor of the FixTheCountry movement said the move is just to frustrate a delay proceedings but they are optimistic that the needful will be done by the law.
