The Electoral Commission of Ghana has come out to deny the allegation that it intends to rig this year’s election in favour of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In an interview with Nana Yaw Kesse of PeaceFm, Communications Officer of the EC Madam Sylvia Annor said “We have no intention of rigging the election; we make sure we involve all the political parties in everything we do; there is transparency in our processes”.
This follows a decision by some opposition political parties to embark on a series of demonstrations against the EC’s decision to compile a new voters register.
This group named: interparty resistance against new voters register is made up of the largest opposition party; NDC, and others.
The Communication Officer went on to justify reasons why the country needs a new voters’ register.
