Coalition of Young
Liberals (COYLIB) congratulates Mrs Charlotte Osei on her new
appointment as the head of Electoral Commission of Ghana.
welcome the new status in good faith and have every confidence that with
your appointment Ghana stands a better chance of deepening its
democratic credentials in the continent and the world at large.
feel elated to have you as the first female to take up this generalist
position. However, without having a trait of "statistics" in your
aforementioned degrees, we will encourage you to familiarise yourself
with figures as declaration and pronouncement of election results cannot
be sullied with errors.
The enormity of the task that lies ahead
as Ghana prepares for election 2016 requires that you play a neutral
role and discharge your duties accordingly without fear or favour by
ensuring that the nation continues to enjoy the peace and stability.
entreat you to improve the electoral system in accordance with the
Supreme Court rulings and reform the bureaucratic system associated with
your new office by eliminating the “dark room" mysteries and allow
transparency to prevail.
In respect of your accolades from the
Presidency as an institutional reformer, we are by this publication
craving your indulgence of taking a proper cue from past elections
marred with over voting and irregularities, and avoid a repeat in future
elections in the country.
Mrs Osei, your success as the new head
of the Electoral Commission will depend on how your actions in next
year’s election do not lead the country into anarchy and chaos.
