The EC Chair was summoned following an urgent question filed by Subin MP Eugene Antwi over a discrepancy in the Commission’s 2017 financial statement.

The EC charged ¢10 from journalists for accreditation and ¢5 for replacement of lost voter’s ID cards but these monies were not captured in its statement.
But in her response, the EC boss said it was an oversight.
She explained the accreditation money was handed to the printers while the one generated from the replacement of cards are intact in the Commission’s bank account.
