The National democratic Congress [NDC] is calling on the Inspector General of Police to ensure that all security personnel who will be deployed for the elections are placed on the special voters list.
While expressing their views on several issues relating to the operation of the Electoral Commission, the NDC has also lamented over the omitting of names of some security personnel from the special voters list.
According to Hon. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, Director Of Elections for the NDC, their suspicion(NDC) is that this is a deliberate ploy by the Akufo Addo administration to influence the National Election Security Task force to sideline security personnel and rather use the militias they(NPP) have trained to cause mayhem.
“We are calling on the Inspector-General of Police who is the Chairman of the National Election Security Task Force to take immediate steps to resolve the issue by ensuring that all personnel who will be deployed for election duties are placed on the special voters list” he said
He further called on the Electoral Commission to publish the Special Voters list for all Ghanaians to see.
This Mr. Afriyie-Ankrah stated, will help ascertain the facts that only persons who have election related duties are placed on the Special Voters list.
