Presidency dismisses petition against Jean Mensa

Jean Mensa




ASEPA had petitioned Jubilee House on  June 9, 2020 for the removal of the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), Jean Mensa, for failing to declare her assets in accordance with Article 286 of the 1992 Constitution.

But after weeks of lull, the pressure group wrote to the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah, seeking to know whether the Presidency has forwarded the petition to his outfit for action.

On Monday, August 10, the Judicial Secretary, Justice Cynthia Pamela Addo, wrote back to ASEPA confirming receipt of the petition and the action taken thereof.

On Thursday, the Presidency in a letter signed by Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, dismissed the petition.

“I am directed by the President to inform you that your petition has been dismissed.”
