Structure Of The EC

The framework of the current structure of the Electoral Commission can be found in three articles of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.

Article 43 (1) provides that the Commission shall consist of the seven (7) members:

(a) A Chairman

The Chairman is the Chief Executive Officer of the Commission;

(b) Two Deputy Chairmen

The two Deputy Chairmen are in charge of the two broad divisions of the Commission; i.e.  Finance and Administration and the Operations divisions; and

(c)  Four other Members.
Appointment Of Officers

Article 52 requires the Commission to appoint officers and other employees in consultation with the Public Services Commission. From this rudimentary structure, the Commission has established a more elaborate three-tier structure consisting of the Head Office, Regional Offices and District Offices.
