While some political parties think the current EC chair person,Mrs Jean Mensa is unjust and unprofessional when it comes to executing her duties, there comes Mr Kofi Akpaloo, presidential candidate of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) who thinks it is rather the exact opposite. To him Mrs Jean Mensa is fair , transparent and professional unlike her predecessor Mrs Charlotte Osei.
Mr Akpaloo forms part of the list of the 12 final aspirants deemed fit to be on the presidential ballot to contest for the seat of the presidency come December 7, 2020. He bangs about Mrs Charlotte Osei, Mrs Jean Mensa of intentionally making him unqualified for the previous 2016 election. Not only him but a number of other aspirants.
According to him, Jean Mensa did a well refined job of professionalism by raising a red flag against all those who used CPP members as supporters in filing their nominations. This is how the work is supposed to be done, he thinks. Not like Charlotte Osei who just decided without any proper reason to disqualify some of them in the 2016 polls.
On Monday, 19th October 2020, brought out the list of qualified persons who can be on the ballot for the presidential elections. Out of the seventeen(17) aspirants who filed, only 12 qualified and the remaning five(5) were rejected.
