New Patriotic Party Chairman for Gomoa West, Joe Donkor says the chairman for the Electoral Commission [EC], Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan must not be given a single dime by the state when his term of office expires this year.

He explained that the EC boss has been incompetent over the years concerning how he manages Ghana’s electoral processes.

Joe Donkor was speaking to Peacefmonline.com regarding the Supreme Court’s order to suspend a well-advertised District Assembly elections which was scheduled for March 3, 2015.

A fisherman, Eyi Mensah, who filed the writ said he was denied an opportunity to file his nomination despite meeting all conditions to contest adding that the EC closed nominations before the maturation of the Constitutional Instrument (CI) 85.

The Supreme Court subsequently ordered the EC to stop running adverts of the elections ahead of the ruling on Friday.

The court contended that it was not right for the Commission to continue advertising the election when there was a case challenging the legality of the processes after which the election was suspended.

Sharing his thoughts on the ruling, the NPP man said “This clearly shows that the EC is not on top of his work. The NPP was right to have sought the intervention of the Supreme Court in 2012 to adjudicate on malpractices that transpired during the general elections, but due to some funny reasons, the EC, President and NDC won the case”.

“His [Dr. Afari Gyan] time is almost due for retirement but he must go on retirement without benefit…if not, others will learn from him and put to danger Ghana’s electoral system knowing very well that there will be no punishment impose on them by the state,” he told Peacefmonlone.com.
