EC’s reason for no-show in Parliament will shock you

According to the Commission, the notice got to its office late, at a time some commissioners had travelled outside Accra.

Sitting had to be suspended by Speaker Reverend Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye on Thursday after EC Chair Jean Mensa failed to appear to make her presentation.

The National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, had appeared earlier to brief the House on the security situation in the country ahead of the polls.
