Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Jean Mensah has disclosed that she inherited a very weak institution which was not founded on rules.

She’s also expressed worry about how the Commission was run as a free for all institution that lacked governance framework and was a subject of state capture by foreign elements.

“It is an institution that has is not founded on rules, is not founded on administrative policies, does not have a governance framework. We came into office and found out that we do not have a single policy to guide procurement, to guide finance, to guide human resource, nothing exists.

“In a nutshell, the Commission has existed as an election machine, and over the year we have spent a lot of efforts to plug the loopholes to the best of our ability. It has been run as a free for all institution,” she explained.
