The Director of Communications for the
National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon
Nkansah says the ‘noise’ being made by
political pressure group, ‘Let My Vote Count
Alliance’ to have certain personalities dropped
from the EC’s Steering Committee will not
change the 2016 election results to favor the
opposition NPP.
He holds the firm belief that his party, the NDC, has already won the upcoming
polls and is not interested in influencing the
membership of those serving on the Electoral
Commission’s Steering Committee in order to
manipulate the system to win the upcoming
elections on November 7, 2016.
Political pressure group, The Let My Vote
Count Alliance (LMVCA), expressed worry
over the strange action by the EC in the
selection of members of a “Steering
The group, in a statement issued
and copied to Madam Charlotte Osei, EC Chair,
claimed the NDC is influencing the electoral
body in an inappropriate manner and asked
that the EC dissolves the ‘NDC-Biased Steering
Committee’ with immediate effect.
According to the group, the inclusion of Dr.
Karl Mark Arhin who was nominated by
National Service Scheme as its representative
to the committee makes it a partisan one since
the nominee is a card-bearing NDC member
who worked as a Deputy Director of
International Affairs for the Party.
The pressure group also had issues with the
inclusion of Mr. Francis Azumiah from the
Peace Council and Lawyer Joe Whittal from
CHRAJ to serve on the EC’s Steering Committee.
But the NDC Communications Officer on Okay
Fm’s Ade Akye Abia
Morning Show stated that the NPP pressure
group knows their party has already lost the
2016 elections and is, therefore, striving to
find excuses for its eventual defeat.
“NDC doesn’t support wrongdoings, and we
know we will win the 2016 general elections;
so we won’t play any role in EC (task force
committee) in order to win the elections. Any
time the election will be held, the NDC will
win. it is only NPP crying foul because they
know they can’t match the NDC and so they
are looking for an excuse when they lose the
2016 elections,” he asserted.
He added that, even if the NPP pressure group
had not raised the alarm on Dr. Karl Mark
Arhin’s inclusion, the NDC would have
demanded he resigns if he (Arhin) had officially
informed the party because it is a conflict of
interest situation.
“Dr. Arhin should have known that he is a
politician and could not accept that offer, but
I don’t know whether he is not experienced;”
stating that Dr. Arhin has resigned and has
been replaced by another person from
National Service Scheme (NSS).
