NDC sued over election misconduct
NDC’s Communicator Ransford Delali Kasu is suing the party over claims that it filled positions that required two officers as opposed to one.
According to the NDC constitution, two officers are required to hold the positions of Regional Vice Chairmen, Deputy Youth Organizers and Deputy Organizers. Guidelines show that the two candidates with the highest scores should be sworn in as the offices’ leaders, but Kasu says the casting of only one ballot for one candidate has taken place, arguing that it goes against the Ghana Constitution.
Kasu also plans to call attention to the national level for similar wrongdoings, he claims. The NDC has eight days to respond to the suit that was filed Tuesday.
New regional executive elections are currently underway at the Volta Regional Delegates Conference at the GM Afeti Auditorium of Ho Technical University.
Among the candidates are Dzifa Attivor the former Transport Minister and John Gyapong Kudjoe, the acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences, who are both running for regional chair.
Egypt Kudoto, the former incumbent youth organizer has lost to Mathias Alagbo during elections Friday. Fafa Agbai won the Women organizer position.
