The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, has congratulated Mrs. Charlotte Osei on her appointment as the new EC chair.
The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, headed by Nana Oye Lithur has congratulated Mrs. Charlotte Osei on her appointment as the new EC chair.
The Ministry noted that Mrs. Osei’s appointment has come at a very historic point in the history of Ghana’s women empowerment process.
In a release from the Ministry on Thursday, it noted that the Ministry wishes Mrs. Charlotte Osei well and describes her appointment as historic due to the fact that the EC position for the past 22 years has been occupied by a man, known and respected in both Ghana and abroad for steering Ghana’s electoral process peacefully This according to the Ministry “is prove to the fact that the integration of women into Ghana’s development process is on course”.
“Mrs. Osei adds to the long list of women who have proven in Ghana, that given the opportunity, a woman can equally do well. The list includes the Chief Justice, Justice Mrs. Georgina Theodora Wood, and the Government Statistician, Dr. Philomena Nyarko, former Speaker of Parliament, Her Ladyship Justice Bamford Addo, two Commissioners of CHRAJ and many others”, the statement reiterated.
The Ministry in its released expressed the hope that Mrs Osei receives the necessary support from all shades of the political divide to succeed.
Mrs. Osei is not new to public office. As the immediate past head of the National Commission for Civic Education, and with her envious academic laurels, the Ministry believes she is well positioned for the post of Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana.
