Some political parties in Ghana
In spite of attempts by the four major political parties to stop the Electoral Commission (EC) from conducting the Wulensi and Kwabre West by-elections, their candidates are said to be actively campaigning for the elections.
The EC is expected to be formally served with a writ on Thursday jointly filed at an Accra High Court by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), New Patriotic Party (NPP), Convention People?s Party (CPP) and the People?s National Convention (PNC).
The General Secretaries of the four parties insist the EC cannot go ahead with the by-elections because of the absence of a valid voters register.
Whilst at it, their candidates are not leaving anything to chance. They are engaged in serious campaigning.
According to Kwabena Delare, the District Electoral Officer in charge of the Wulensi Constituency, notices of submission indicating the respective candidates of the various political parties would be posted in the constituency.
He said that notice of election would be posted sometime this week, adding that all the political parties are actively campaigning in preparation for the upcoming by-election.
According to reports, some residents at the Kwabre West Constituency are not too enthused about the impending legal suit against the EC.
The residents are indifferent as to which voters? register the EC uses for the by-election.
The seats of Wulensi and Kwabre West Constituencies became vacant following the death of their MPs, Alhaji Saani Iddi, and Emmannuel Owusu Ansah respectively in separate incidents.
