EC boss answers to parliament satisfactory – Haruna Idrissu

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has indicated that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana provided satisfactory responses to the questions posed to her by members of parliament in connection with her office’s failure to capture in its 2017 financial statement, monies charged journalists for accreditation during the 2016 elections.

The EC collected GHS10 from journalists for the accreditation and GHS5 for the replacement of ID cards.

Mr Iddrisu told parliament that the EC boss provided the needed answers satisfactorily.

Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, on the other hand, said he could not describe the answers as satisfactory as there were some loopholes in the responses by the Chair of the election management body
