Honourable Haruna Iddrisu is a lawyer and politician who is a member of the Seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic of Ghana representing Tamale South. He is also currently the Minority Leader in Ghana’s Parliament.
On his social media handle, he took to address the general public on how Jean Mensa, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission promised the NDC Caucus in Parliament that she will study the content of their 6 page petition on the Techiman South fraud and respond within the shortest possible time.
“It is exactly a week since Electoral Commissioner, Jean Mensa assured the NDC Caucus in Parliament that she will study the content of our 6-page petition on the Techiman South fraud and respond “within the shortest possible time.” he said He later asked a rhetorical question as to if Jean Mensa is waiting to respond after swearing-in.
Adding that, that was not her attitude when the NPP petitioned on Banda and secured three re-collations.
He concluded by saying, “her conduct is clearly not the standard expected of public officers under Article 296 of the 1992 Constitution.
We sure will have a lot to talk about when she shows up in Parliament for Budget and Programme Approval.
God save our Republic.”
Below is the letter Jean Mensa sent to Honourable Haruna Iddrisu on 23rd December, with regards to the presentation of petition by the minority Caucus of Parliament: I bring you warm greetings from the Electoral Commission of Ghana and trust that this letter finds you well.
On behalf of the Electoral Commission, I write to acknowledge receipt of your letter and petition dated the 21st of December, 2020.
We apologise for our inability to meet with you and your delegation. This stemmed from the late receipt of your letter.
We assure you that our doors remain open should you wish to present the petition in person to the Commission.
Meanwhile the Commission will study the contends and respond with the shortlisted possible time.
As a Commission we remain committed to resolving issues arising from the just ended election which are within our mandate. On behalf of the Electoral Commission, I take this opportunity to wish you compliments of the season.
