An evil spirit tormenting NDC to reject new register - NPP MP
The Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah has taken the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the cleaners describing them as witches over their refusal to the compilation of the new voter’s register.
The legislator in an interview with Rainbow Radio 87.5FM said the register in its current state is bloated and lacks the credibility to be used to organise a free, fair and transparent election this year.
Mr. Owusu Amankwah said the NDC is refusing to accept this noble idea of compiling a new register because an evil spirit, which does not want this country to progress, possesses them.
The MP who is also the Chairman for the Assurance Committee in Parliament noted that the Electoral Commission as an independent body cannot be pushed or ordered around as the NDC seeks to do.
‘The electoral register is fraught with irregularities. The way some persons acquired thee voters’ register was illegal. Some used the National Health Insurance Card to acquire the cards. This issue came before the Supreme Court and the EC was ordered to clean the register but they are yet to do so,’ he said.
He asked the NDC to boycott the upcoming exercise if they are against it since it is a voluntary exercise.
He also alleged the NDC piled the old register with minors and unqualified persons when they were in power hence their refusal to have it replaced.
