HOT STORIES GHANA

Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

Deputy General Secretary of Ghana’s biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress, Peter Boamah Otukonor has reiterated that, they will stop the compilation of the new voter’s register by the Electoral Commission (EC).

The NDC has condemned the EC for misleading the public because
according to them, the issue of a new voters’ register was not
extensively discussed.

“Let me put it on record right now on your station, perhaps maybe the
first, that we can never start the registration by the end of June. I
have heard others predicting around the 23rd of June as the beginning of
the registration. That can not happen. It is not possible.”

He
stressed: “as we speak, the equipment is not in and its a fact they
admitted that at the meeting. As we speak the CI 126 which is an
amendment of the CI 91 is not mature and it’s a fact they admitted at
the meeting. And it’s also a fact that the CI 126 will mature the first
week of June, that is a fact. And it’s also a fact that the same CI 126
in their current amendment that is pending provides that they furnish
political parties with the registration centres, the registration
officials and the date, 21 days before the start of the registration.”

Mr
Otokunor insisted that if the CI will mature on the 3rd of June, there
was no way “you can start by 23rd, if you go by the 23rd, then it tells
you clearly that the CI has to mature 3rd of June and they will do the
gazetting that same day.”

He explained “because when you prepare
all those things and send for gazetting. The gazetting takes at least a
week. So when you calculate all that, there’s no way you can start
registration last week of June and we have maintained that. Perhaps you
want to take this as a prophecy.”

“We stand by our position that
we are on the path of destruction, we have set ourselves on the path of
chaos, on the path of a constitutional crisis and that is where the EC
is taking us,” he ended.
