NDC disagrees with the filing procedure

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Electoral Commission of imposing challenges on the Party hence its inability to file the nomination at 1:00 as earlier promised.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Electoral Commission of imposing challenges on the Party hence its inability to file the nomination at 1:00 as earlier promised.

The Electoral Commission, however, debunked the claims that the Commission was to blame for the errors detected in the Identity Cards and on the forms. According to the EC, all the minor errors were corrected and the political parties were notified in writing 10 days before the filing of nomination.

According to Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the NDC, “If the EC had used the old voters register the party wouldn’t have faced a situation where the EC detected mistakes and recalled the identity cards of some voters who had endorsed the forms for their presidential candidate.”

He, therefore, blamed the flaws in the register on the hurried nature by which the EC conducted the compilation saying the EC was displaying provisional register” as yesterday when they were filing the nomination forms. He said the nomination forms contained mistakes and that the PNDC Law, which was quoted on the form, had been amended.

Mr. Nketia said the challenges the EC was facing had vindicated the NDC’s position that time was not on the side on the Commission to compile a new register. “Is it not strange that a certified register that is critical for the filing of the nomination is not ready while the process of nomination is on-going?” he asked.
