The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is accusing the Electoral Commission of attempting to create confusion in the country ahead of the 2020 General Elections.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the Commission has been unable to maintain consistent communication on its decision to compile a new voter’s register ahead of the crucial poll.
The Commission had earlier said it would finalise the exercise on November 8, 2020, which was challenged by the NDC and other smaller parties who are against the entire process in the first place.
Hours later the Electoral Commission said in a story published by Daily Graphic that it will complete the process by October 15, 2020.
Meanwhile, the opening of nominations for the presidential and parliamentary elections are expected to be done on October 5, 2020.
This demonstration of inconsistency on the part of the Electoral Commission indicates that it is composed of a “bunch of confused people,” Mr Asiedu Nketia said on Monday.
“We have a confused bunch of people calling themselves commissioners and they are trying to lead the whole nation into confusion,” the NDC chief scribe said.
The NDC and other smaller parties are opposed to the compilation of a new register, a decision Mr Asiedu Nketia said it is in the interest of all Ghanaians.
“Do you know where we are walking towards? We are walking towards a situation where one set of election results will be announced today, then tomorrow morning a different one will be announced, then the next day a different one will be announced – that is the confusion we are bargaining for,” Mr Asiedu Nketia said.
