Political appointments at EC not advisable amid trust deficit – CDD-Ghana Fellow [Headline News]

 Fellow at the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD), Dr John Osae-Kwapong says the perception around President Akufo-Addo’s recent appointments to the Electoral Commission (EC) is unhealthy for the state institution.

A recent Afrobarometer survey revealed that only 10% of Ghanaians trust the EC. As a result, the fellow insists that appointing people who appear to be politically affiliated with the ruling party may exacerbate the trust deficit.

“It is also not good for the EC at this moment because they are in a situation where trust in the Electoral Commission is at a historic low based on the most recent Afrobarometer survey. Like only 10% say they trust the EC a lot,” he said on Thursday.
