Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has called on the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to consider nominating him as the next Electoral Commission Boss after the dismissal of Mrs Charlotte Osei and her two deputies.
The maverick politician expressed interest in becoming the next electoral commissioner of Ghana just hours after the controversial removal of the electoral commissioner and her two deputies.
The Assin Central legislator who is bent on bringing Anas down believes he could step in the shoes of Charlotte Osei.

“The President must consider nominating me to fill one of the three vacant positions at the Electoral Commission…,” he said on Accra-based Oman FM.
The President in a statement released on Thursday evening dismissed EC Boss, Charlotte Osei and her two deputies, Amadu Sulley and Georgina Owusu-Amankwah from their posts.
The dismissal of the EC heads has left three major spots in the country’s electoral commission empty. What this means is that the president would have to, as a matter of urgency, nominate three officials who could do the job as spelt out in the 1992 Constitution.
