A Member of the Communication Team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Anim Piesie says the attitude of the Electoral Commission (EC) can lead to a situation where a particular political party will reject the results of the 2020 election.“I don’t know why the EC is still adamant and stubborn . . . with this attitude something dangerous can happen,” he indicated on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Monday.
When asked what can happen if the EC goes ahead to compile a new register, he said: “it can lead to electoral disputes and mistrust in the system; where a political party might not accept the results.”
Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission has reportedly indicated that there are over one million ghost names in the current voters' register and that a new register must be compiled to ensure a credible, free and fair election.
But Anim Piesie disagrees.
According to him, “there is a way of getting rid of ghost names and that is not by compiling a new voters’ register.”
