Barring any last minute changes, President Nana Akufo-Addo, is set to appoint a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana (UG) Political Science Department, to fill one of the vacant spaces left at the Electoral Commission (EC).
The Herald, has intercepted information to the effect that, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, has been penciled down by the President to the position of a Deputy Electoral Commissioner.
He is said to be very excited and is finding it very difficult to keep the news to himself by keep his mouth shut.
The Political Science lecturer, whose analysis has always favoured the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), is said to be telling his colleagues in the department, he has been called by the Flagstaff House to ready himself to fill one of the spaces left behind by either Amadu Sulley or Georgina Owusu Amankwah.
But his colleagues at the department are in a state of shock, and are asking questions as to how the government arrived at such a decision, because they say they know him to be a very strong NPP man, whose argument and analysis are always skewed towards the party.
They argue they cannot vouch for his neutrality on EC, as they know he will compromise that position as far as elections are concerned.
Meanwhile, Prof. Joy Henrietta Mensah-Bonsu, who President Nana Akuffo Addo is likely to nominate for EC chair, has also had her neutrality questioned as result of a statement she is quoted to have said in 2003.
“The *PNDC* over the past years committed numerous atrocious in this country and unfortunately has found itself in a new form as the *NDC* to partake in our democratic dispensation. We as Ghanaians must do all it takes to keep them (NDC) from taking up the governing seat of Ghana”, Prof. Mensah-Bonsu is quoted to have said.
