NDC cries foul over shortage of electoral materials
The National Democratic Congress has fumed at what
it describes as the acute shortage of materials in
its strongholds especially in the Volta region.
In a release signed by the party’s Propaganda
Secretary, Richard Quashiga, the NDC has raised
these concerns with the Electoral Commission
offices, but said nothing has been done about it
Below is the full release.
NDC CONCERNED ABOUT SHORTAGE OF ELECTORAL
MATERIALS IN ITS STRONGHOLDS
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is deeply
concerned about the acute shortage of registration
materials in the on-going biometric registration
exercise in NDC strongholds, particularly the
Volta Region. Since the start of the last phase of
the exercise, most centers in the Volta Region
have remained non functional. Complains to
Electoral Commission officials have not so far
resolved the challenge.
The shortage of especially Forms 1A and 1C,
cartridges as well as laminates in NDC strongholds
leaves us wondering if this is deliberate
especially when our checks reveal the EC at its
headquarters in Accra has more than enough of such
materials. Our suspicion is heightened because of
the person who currently is the Director of
Elections, Mr. Isaac Kofi Asomaning.
He was the same EC officer who superintended over
electoral matters in the Ashanti region in 2008
and created a bloated register there to the
disadvantage of the NDC.
We are by this statement putting on record that
Mr. Asomaning, has severally been alerted about
the situation but failed to take action. We are
hereby appealing humbly to the high office of Mr.
Afari Gyan, the Electoral Commissioner to help
resolve the challenge.
