The Electoral Commission (EC) has debunked claims made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the commission is conniving with the National Identification Authority (NIA) to rig the upcoming December polls to favour the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to the Commission’s Public Relations Officer, Sylvia Annoh, “it is impossible for the EC to conspire with any political party or institution as being speculated by Mr Ofosu-Ampofo and the NDC” because the electoral processes remain transparent at all levels.
She indicated that the EC will continue to perform its functions within the confinement of the law by providing free, fair and transparent elections this year.
On Thursday, May 14, 2020, the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, in a press conference alleged that the NIA is focusing more on the Ashanti Region for its exercise since the said region is the NPP's stronghold.
He continued that due to this, the NIA has procured more equipment to the region to capture many people as possible for the exercise because the data collected would be given to the EC for the new electoral roll.
The EC has therefore pleaded with the public to ignore the lies levelled against them by the NDC as the party aims to bring the commission’s name into disrepute.
