Majority Leader
February 28, 2023

Majority Leader Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has announced to Parliament that chair of the Electoral Commission madam Jean Mensah would be in the House to brief Committee of the whole on preparation to conduct the District Level elections and the Constitutional Instrument being worked on.

According to him the EC chair was outside the country at the ongoing Nigeria elections, when officials of the Commission established contact with her on Thursday, February 23, 2023 in view of the Minority side demanding to have her presence in the House before the Constitutional Instrument (C. I) could be discussed.

The Majority Leader got in touch with the Minority Leader if Committee of the whole could be held on Friday, February 24, 2023 but Dr. Ato Forson indicated to the Majority Leader that it was not possible because most of his members were going to pick forms to contest their primaries.

“It would not be wise for us to do that hence the EC should delay in coming for us to have the meeting on Tuesday, February, 28, 2023 so could not have space in the Business Statement and I have to provide the House with this information”.
