Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sworn into office a new chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC).

The president said on Wednesday night that the chair, Jean Mensa, and her two deputies, together with a member of the commission who was also sworn in, took office at a time when there was a considerable anxiety in the nation about the work of the EC.

He said it was the quality of their work that would reassure Ghanaians that the the country's democratic system of government would be properly nurtured by an electoral system that allowed the voices to be plainly and loudly heard.

The swearing-in of the top EC officials comes one month after the president removed from office Charlotte Osei as the EC chair, alongside her two deputies on grounds of stated misconduct and incompetence as found by the committee set up by the Chief Justice to investigate petitions levelled against them.
