General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said that the current Electoral Commission (EC) is making it impossible and difficult for them to be able to be vigilant and follow all the electoral process to ensure they win the upcoming December 7.
According to the NDC General Secretary, the vigilance of the political parties to ensure that elections are won at the polling stations has been made impossible by the Electoral Commission (EC) led by Madam Jean Mensa.
Expressing his thoughts and grievances on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, the NDC Chief Scribe noted that the proper measures by the Electoral Commission (EC) to empower the political parties to ensure that the 2020 general election will be won at the polling station have not been put in place.
“We can only say that elections are won at the polling stations if proper measures are put in place by the Electoral Commission to ensure free, fair and transparent election in order for the political parties to follow . . . if such proper measures are being taken away, then it is not possible for elections to be won at polling stations,” he indicated.
Deliberating on the proper measures the EC ought to put in place to make it possible for the election to be won at the polling stations, Asiedu Nketia accused the Electoral Commission (EC) of not making available the voter’s register to all the political parties to make sure there is no addition or subtraction of names in the register.
“One of the measures which makes an election to be won at a polling station is the availability of the voter’s register to all political parties to see that nobody has been added to the register and if this is done, one can say that the election is likely to be won at the polling station, but in the absence of the voter’s register, you cannot say that the election is won at the polling station,” he pointed.
He maintained that the Electoral Commission (EC) is doing everything to destroy the acceptable measures which have been in existence for a long time that ensure that the election is won at the polling station as it should be in the 2020 general election.
