The campaign team of presidential hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Duffuor is doubting the credibility of the voters register for the party’s presidential and parliamentary elections.
It has therefore called for an urgent round table discussion to address anomalies it has detected in the voters register for the crucial election.
NDC will be electing its presidential candidate on 13th May, 2023 for the 2024 general election.
According to Dr. Duffuor’s campaign team, the demand for thorough discussion is to ensure a transparent and fair electoral process.
A statement signed and issued on 2nd May, 2023 by a campaign team member of Dr Duffuor, Kofi B Kukubor said the concerns were first expressed in a letter dated April 17, 2023, wherein the campaign team requested access to the voters’ register, which serves as the basis for determining the eligibility of voters in the impending presidential and parliamentary primaries.
It indicated that following the said concerns, a meeting was held at the NDC party headquarters on 2nd May, 2023, during which some information regarding the voters’ register was disclosed to the team.
However, it said upon conducting a preliminary analysis of the information provided, the campaign team discovered excessive anomalies within the register.
The irregularities have raised doubts about the integrity of the electoral process and the accuracy of the voter data being presented by the NDC Elections Commission.
In light of the concerns, Dr. Duffuor’s campaign team has urgently requested that the relevant stakeholders, including key actors within the party, should engage in a round table discussion to address the identified issues promptly.
The team emphasised the importance of resolving these matters to ensure a transparent and fair election, avoiding any potential pitfalls that may have severe consequences.
