BY: Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson

Information available to Graphic Online indicates the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Osei, and her two deputies, Sulley Amadu and Mrs Georgina Opoku-Amankwaa are to appear before the Chief Justice at 1pm today.

Their appearance before Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo, according to Graphic Online court correspondent Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson, is based on a petition forwarded to her by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Also to appear before the Chief Justice in connection with the case is Lawyer Maxwell Opoku-Agyemang, who first filed a petition on behalf of unnamed staff of the EC to remove Madam Charlotte Osei from office. He is to appear with his clients.

It is unclear yet if a prima facie case has been established against the EC Commissioners, with an implication for them to step down from office pending completion of investigations.
