The Electoral Commission’s ploy to rig the upcoming December 7 elections for the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) will start with the special voting on 1 December 2016, Mr Sammi Awuku, National Youth Organiser of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said.

Mr Awuku told NPP’s Northern Regional Youth League in Tamale that: “The special voters’ list is a source of worry to us as a political party because several names have been deleted.”

Mr Awuku said the National Peace Council and the Christian Council of Ghana must make sure the EC demonstrates its transparency and neutrality in the polls.

Mr Awuku also criticised the EC’s advertisements which senstitise voters to go home right after voting.

“We disagree with the EC’s advert asking voters to go home. We are ready to protect the precious ballots. We are determined and prepared to defend the ballot on December 7, and no amount of news conferences by the security agencies can frustrate us.”

“Ghanaians should punish Mahama’s government for taking us for granted.” “We have suffered for eight years under Mahama and so you need to register your anger on the ballot. Sacrifice the last eight days to achieve this goal,” Mr Awuku added.

“The NDC now symbolises desperation. They have wasted the taxpayers’ money on erection of giant billboards. Ghanaians will regret it if they make a mistake and renew Mahama’s mandate.”
