A senior research fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs, Dr. Ransford Gyampo, has said that, the deputy chairman in charge of operations of the Electoral Commission (EC), Amadu Sulley, must be sanctioned.

According to him, the activities of some of the officials have led to the institution being discredited and a sanction will restore the credibility of the commission.

“Amadu Sulley must be sanctioned…EC no more operates as a commission”


“It seems that the EC doesn’t operate as a Commission. You have certain individuals, I don’t know whether by sheer incompetence, they try to allocate certain duties and responsibilities to themselves and they ignore the fact that they work with stakeholders.”

“Over the years, this attitude has dented our electoral politics and has ushered the whole nation into chaotic scenes and confusion.”

“If you go to the EC or the members of the Commission, some will tell you that they are not even aware that such an order was given,” Dr Gyampo remarked. 

The Electoral Commission on Tuesday put on hold the continuous registration of voters pending a thorough discussion of the matter with IPAC [Inter-Party Advisory Committee]. The suspension came in the wake of various political parties raising concerns as to why the commission did not consult them before commencing the exercise.
