JUST IN: Injunction filed to prevent Akufo-Addo from appointing new EC Chair

By Clement Edward Kumsah

A Ghanaian citizen by name Fafali Nyonator has filed an interlocutory injunction at the Supreme Court today July 18, 2018, to restrain President Akufo-Addo from appointing a new EC chair.

President Akufo-Addo is expected to nominate a Chairperson for the Electoral Commission, as well as two persons to fill the vacancy created by the two dismissed deputy commissioners this week.

“My view is that in the absence of any legal impediments, yes, he [President Akufo-Addo] would want to do it [appoint new EC chair], and I’m sure he will do it very soon. In the next few days,” Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Dame has said.
