National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has stated that the Electoral Commission, in addition to reducing the number of voters in NDC strongholds, have also inflated number of voters in the ruling NPP strongholds.
Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana, Sammy Gyamfi said “apart from missing names, you also have additional names which have been added. When we do the registration, there are daily print outs that political parties are given so that we are all on the same page.”
He added, “Take a constituency like Asawaase in the Ashanti Region, J Line Toilet, where the NPP is determined to unseat Muntaka, the number of people who were registered where 670 that is what we have on our printout. The register exhibited has 905 names, the number added is 235. We don’t know where they came from. So we are not just talking about omitted names.”
“You have names omitted or included and the numbers are huge, not the normal ones that we have seen in the history of this country, this is unusual. You have names being added which the EC is unable to explain,” he said.
