before Parliament to answer questions in relation to the preparations ahead of the elections on December.
This is the second time the EC boss has failed to show up in Parliament on days that she has been scheduled to brief the house on pertinent national issues. It is recalled that prior to the compilation of the new voters register, the minority had mounted pressure for the EC chair to brief the house on how the commission was going to carry out the exercise amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. She failed to show up on the June 9 as was earlier agreed with the house.
In today’s instance, the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, was forced to suspend sitting due the absence of the EC Chair.
