Former President John Dramani Mahama says the removal of the Electoral Commission chairperson,
Mrs Charlotte Osei, her two deputies and the appointment of some new commissioners was "regrettable."

Proud to serve on the same mission with the highly respected former EC Chair, Kwadwo Afari Gyan, who for almost 2 decades established Ghana’s worldwide reputation for credible election management.
Current controversy surrounding removal of EC Chair and deputies and subsequent appointment of new commissioners is regrettable and carries a potential to erode Ghana's democratic credentials.
