Deputy Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Patrick Boamah has said Jane A. Mensa, the newly appointed chairperson of the Electoral Commission and her Deputies must work as a team.

“The Commissioners ought to know that it is team work that matters, the individual game is over where we have a chairperson that person should work with other commissioners so that they work as a team.”

According to the Deputy Minister, the President had followed the laid down rules to appoint competent people to serve at the EC, which is an independent body with stability to run the nation’s election.

He further added that with the creation of new regions, “we need to put together a team that would see to it that the process goes through, I believe it was about time the President acted to fill in the vacuum”.

Mr. Patrick Boamah called on the new appointed commissioners to ensure that they pull the media along with decision they would be making.

On the accusation by some Minority MPs that Jane Mensa is not a neutral person, he responded by saying the Minority would always have their say and question if the Special Prosecutor is an NPP person as the Minority would want Ghanaians to believe?

She would meet the test of time, she is in to fix the problems NDC left behind at the EC he said.
