The youth of Krobo have welcomed the decision by the Electoral Commission to exclude the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality from the upcoming nationwide assembly election.
They are however asking the EC to come clear on whether or not it will make special arrangement for the people of Natriku electoral area to vote since they were omitted from local level elections which took place in the municipality in December last year.
Presently, the fate of the peoplein that area is not known since the EC is now excluding the entire municipality (including them) from the imminent election slated for March next year.
Reacting to a Press Release issued by the EC and signed by its Deputy Chairman (Operations), AmaduSulley, a spokesperson for KlomaGbi, Hilary Saki Kodji said ?The EC couldn?t have taken a better decision considering the fact that our assembly members were elected just a year ago and sworn into office barely ten (10) months ago. The constitution provides for, at least, a four year term for assembly members and the Commission couldn?t have flouted this?.
?While welcoming the decision to exclude Lower Manya, we want the Commission to tell us whether the people of Natriku- who were mistakenly omitted from last year?s elections-would be given a special consideration to vote in their electoral area and elect their assembly man. We need to know and the EC must be forthright with this information?, he said.
