The Electoral Commission (EC) has denied allegations that it has conspired with the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) to delete over 1,500 names of members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) from the register of voters in the Ablekuma North constituency.

The allegation was made by the Chairman of the Ablekuma North Constituency of the NPP, George Kofi Nkrumah, but the ND’s Parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Sally Amaki Darko Attopee has denied any such thing has happened.

Speaking on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Thursday July 21, the Public Relations Officer of the EC, Eric Kofi Dzakpasu said it was impossible to identify who belonged to which political party simply by checking names on the electoral roll and, thus, the allegation was unfounded.

“Registration is an individual affair. According to the law, we collect their names, their date of birth, their age, their sex, their place of birth, residential address, names of parents and hometown. There is no indication as to which party someone belongs to, so to begin with, by what process can the EC identify persons belonging to a particular political party? So in the first place, it is simply not true, it cannot be true and it is not even possible for anyone just by checking the electoral roll to identify people, who belong to any political party”, he told host Prince Minkah.
