The EC boss, Madam Jean Mensa has come under fire by the General Secretary of the leading opposition party in Ghana Johnson Asiedu Nketia aka General Mosquito. The latter has asked that the Electoral Commission boss should alter her ways of running affairs at the EC or be ready to face the wrath of the party.
General Mosquito was speaking in an interview on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ morning show. He said the EC boss has refused to learn how things are done. He had difficulty understanding why the EC boos cannot do things right when it comes to the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC).
He lamented that the party cannot tolerate this going into the 2020 general elections. According to him, there are rules and regulations that are followed in inter-party activities but the EC boss keeps repeating the same errors even after been corrected. He added that she cannot come and thwart everything.
According to General Secretary of NDC, the party will do all it can to resist any attempt by the Electoral Commission (EC) to organize the upcoming limited voters’ registration at the district offices of the commission across the regions. The Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) did not agree on the said programme when they met in March this year. Hence the EC boss cannot go ahead with the proposed limited registration until the parties had met to discuss it at the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC)
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) have strongly objected to the move and oppose matter and is the registration.
Mr. Aseidu Nketia also raised concerns about the possible lack of resources at some of the newly created districts. General Secretary of the leading opposition party in Ghana Johnson Asiedu Nketia aka General Mosquito has also raised issues regarding the likely lack of resources in newly created regions to carry out the proposal. Should the registration go on, people in new region may have to cross boarders into other regions to register which we do not want.
The last meeting of the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC), issues that came up included the registration of persons who have turned 18 at all District Officers of the EC which was not agreed on, the parties also objected the online registration proposed by the EC and called for electoral area by electoral area registration.
