EC to hear Tamale electoral dispute today

The Electoral Commission (EC) will today [Monday] December, 19, 2016 respond to the petition by the Tamale Central branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) over the results of the general election organized a week ago.

The NPP is challenging the results in some polling stations.


The party has officially written to the EC and in a follow up to their petition, they went to the EC for a response but the EC has set today [Monday] to respond to their claims.

The NPP’s Constituency Secretary for Tamale Central, Musah Mutawakilu, said the party will decide on its next line of action after it has received a response from the elections management body.
