Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, a flagbearer candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has urged the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) to cancel the next presidential and parliamentary primaries slated for this coming weekend, May 13, 2023.
He claims that this is a result of some errors in the party’s voter list.
Dr. Duffuor’s campaign team protested that the register is insufficient and unreliable to be used for the elections in a letter to the NDC General Secretary.
The postponement will provide adequate time for the register to be cleaned and a chance for a free and fair election, according to the letter from Kofi Kukubor, Head of Research and Strategy for the Duffuor campaign.
However, it claimed that after performing a preliminary review of the given data, the campaign team found what they considered to be too many abnormalities in the register.
The discrepancies have caused some people to question the legitimacy of the voting process and the veracity of the voter information that the NDC Elections Commission is providing.
The campaign team for Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has urgently asked that the pertinent parties, including major players within the party, participate in a round table meeting to resolve the issues as soon as they are discovered in light of the worries.
The team stresses the significance of finding solutions to these issues in order to guarantee an honest and fair election while avoiding any potential traps that can have serious repercussions.
