The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has issued instructions to its representatives nationwide to ignore the Electoral Commission’s (EC) recent communication.

This EC memo instructed district officials to prevent party agents from participating in the current voter transfer process.

NDC’s General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, has vehemently criticized the EC’s memo, labeling it as abhorrent and a deliberate move to manipulate electoral boundaries through unauthorized voter transfers.

In a statement dated June 3, Kwetey also alleged that the EC is conspiring with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), thereby undermining the integrity of the electoral process, and urged that such directives should be overlooked.

On June 2, the EC had sent out a memo to its district officers, mandating the exclusion of political party agents from the transfer centers, citing incidents of violence as the reason for this decision.

“The Commission’s attention has been drawn to the violent clashes occurring at some of the District Offices as a result of the Transfer of Votes Exercise.

“Regional Directors are to inform District Officers not to allow Agents of Political Parties to observe the Transfer of Votes Exercise with effect from tomorrow, Monday, June 3, 2024.”

Fifi Kwetey said the insistence on the directive is “in furtherance of the suspected devious and sinister agenda of the Commission to manipulate the processes leading to the 2024 elections” and therefore called for its outright defiance.

“The National Democratic Congress therefore hereby calls on all its agents across the country to defy and disregard this outrageous directive by the Electoral Commission.

“All structures of the party, particularly Regional and Constituency Secretariats, are hereby directed to deploy NDC agents to all district offices of the EC to closely monitor the ongoing voter transfer exercise.”
