The Electoral Commission (EC) has denied claims by the NDC and it’s flagbearer, John Mahama over allegations of removing names of the party’s supporters from the voters’ register.
According to the electoral management body, such accusations made by John Mahama are unfounded with no basis.
The EC in a self defense statement noted:
“The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability. Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate, and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age
“To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.
“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register. Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded.”
