Member of Parliament for Sekondi Constituency, Andrew Egyapa Mercer has said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is ranting over the new voters roll because they foresee losing the December 7 election.This comes after the flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama, during the week announced that the party wouldn’t accept any flawed results in the elections.
Speaking on Citi TV’s Big Issue show Saturday, the MP said: “I see the ugly noises that are being made as really a review of a desperate opposition that clearly sees that it is bound to lose an impending election because otherwise, I wonder why Mr. Mahama, the former president will threaten that they are not going to accept a flawed result”.
According to him, the anomalies found in the exhibition of the provisional register is nothing for anyone to worry about as it would be fixed by the EC.
He noted that the NDC, during their tenure of office in 2012, also witnessed the same problem while compiling a new voters register for the 2016 elections.
“In 2012, we held a new biometric register, the exhibition has held between the 1st and 10th of September…same election day of December 7, was there an issue then? So how is an exhibition held between 18th and 25th September with respect to an election that is still going to be held on the 7th of December 2020 an issue?”
