Mr Mahama, who is on an observer mission in Zimbabwe, attached a photo of himself and Ghana’s former EC Chair Dr Afari Gyan, and wrote that he was “proud to serve on the same mission with the highly-respected former EC Chair, Kwadwo Afari Gyan, who for almost two decades established Ghana’s worldwide reputation for credible election management”.

On Monday, July 23, 2018, President Akufo-Addo, nominated Executive Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), Mrs Jean Mensa, as the new EC Chair of Ghana.
