The deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Peter Boamah Otokunor has accused the Electoral Commission of deliberately registering fewer numbers in NDC strongholds as compared to registration in NPP strongholds.
Deputy General Secretary of NDC, Peter Boamah Otokunor speaking on Citi TV‘s current affairs show, The Point of View with Bernard Avle, said in NDC’s strongholds, the daily average of 100 persons at a registration center is not met.
“In most of the areas in our strongholds, they just registered 70 and 80 persons in day one. They were not even able to do the 100 daily average and it’s very scary. But if you look at Ashanti Region, it appears that the machines there may be super-efficient or perhaps the workforce are super-efficient because comparatively, they hover around 100, 110 and 120.
So these are things that we need to look at very carefully. It generates some form of suspicion that undermines the integrity of the process and we raised this concern with the Electoral Commission as well. We feel worried that in our areas, the machines were malfunctioning, but today, it’s been a bit better, but still, there is the need for us to look at the functionality of the equipment,” he said.
