The Former Electoral Commissioner of Ghana, Charlotte Osei, has reacted to 2020 elections results shortly after it was published by the current EC boss.
Charlotte Kesson-Smith Osei is the UN International Elections Commissioner and a Ghanaian lawyer.
She was the former chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana from 2015 until she was dismissed in June 2018 on grounds of financial malfeasance.
