The Electoral Commission of Ghana has dismissed allegations made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that some names of its members have been deleted from the newly compiled voter roll.
The elections management body said the claims are false and should be ignored.
A statement issued by the EC on Wednesday, September 23 said: “Our attention has been drawn to statements in the media by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer to the effect that the Electoral Commission is carrying out an agenda to remove the names of its supporters and sympathizers from the Voters Register.
This allegation is false. “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency and Accountability.
“Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others.
To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.
“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register.
Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded.”
