The newly appointed Chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Kesson-Smith Osei, has pledged to be impartial in the discharge of her duties.

“Together with my colleagues at the EC, we’ll continue to build and strengthen those structures towards a stronger, more independent, objective and impartial commission.

“We will work hard to continue the process of internal reforms and ensure a more effective and collaborative service delivery platform thereby increase the confidence of all our stakeholders in the institution in Ghana’s democracy,” she said after taking her oath of office.

Chairmen of political parties including Paul Afoko of the NPP, Ahmed Ramadan of the PNC and Samia Nkrumah of the CPP joined the ceremony which saw the first female Electoral Commissioner of Ghana, take over from Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, who served the commission for close to 22 years. 

Mrs. Osei until her appointment was the Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE). She is a lawyer with considerable experience in public service management, institutional reform and also has expertise in corporate law, banking, insurance, project financing and public-private partnerships.

The new EC Chairperson holds a Masters in Law (LLM) from Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada and a Masters in Business Leadership from the University of South Africa, Pretoria. She obtained an LLB (Hons) from the University of Ghana in 1992.
