The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has yet again accused the Electoral Commission (EC) of another electoral fraud.
According to the NDC, over 10,000 pink sheets audited did not have verification stamps neither did they have entries of persons biometrically verified to vote.
Addressing a Press conference in Accra yesterday December 18, 2020, said this was seen in about 40% of all polling stations in Ghana.
The National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi said the NDC realized the defeat in the run-up to the elections and drew the attention of the EC but to no avail.
“As you can see, there is nothing on the pink sheet that gives the presiding officer any space to record that figure. So the NDC saw this and drew the attention of the EC to it that this is a recipe for disaster that if you allow a lot of people to vote without verification,” Sammy Gyamfi said.
“If you are voting without verification you can vote multiple times, if you’re voting without verification, you can vote with somebody’s identity. There can be an impersonation, there can be multiple voting, there can be other cases of over-voting. And so this particular provision is critical, and so kindly withdraw your pink sheets and print new ones.”
“They apologized and assured all political parties they were going to rectify this anomaly. But Ladies and Gentlemen, they didn’t do it. And so on our blind side, they sent the defective pink sheet to all 38,000 and over polling stations without any space for presiding officers to record the numbers biometrically verified to vote.”
