The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has been urged by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to pay attention to events in Ghana.
The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, can throw the country into anarchy, according to the opposition party.
Speaking to reporters, Johnson Aseidu Nketia, the National Chairman of the NDC, encouraged the regional alliance to take the initiative to protect Ghana’s democracy.
The NDC Chairman further claims that several anomalies, particularly in the party’s strongholds, have plagued the ongoing limited voter registration drive since it began on September 12, 2023.
“This irresponsible and unconscionable decision of the commission confirms the NDC’s long-held view that the Jean Mensah-led EC is determined to rig the 2024 elections through voter suppression. But she will fail because we are ready for them.
The EC’s decision to limit voter registration to its district offices has the potential to suppress registration and voting, but it can also promote and facilitate gerrymandering because political party representatives will find it challenging to challenge people who may be bussed from one constituency to another to register.
Ladies and gentlemen, there are four other political parties who are plaintiffs in the current Supreme Court case in addition to the NDC, he said. Additionally, as already said, the PNC has lent its support to the lawsuit.
At its district offices across the nation, the Electoral Commission is now conducting the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.
