Also, just last Saturday and Sunday, the EC says it encountered similar challenges with the NDC’s presidential and parliamentary primaries.
Some experts and elections observers have advised the Commission to resolve such challenges to avert any misunderstanding that will result chaos during and after the 2016 elections.
Speaking Monday with Afia Pokua on Adom FM’s “Burning Issues” programme, Samuel Tettey said despite the few challenges they had, the Commission is mapping up a lot of strategies in place to ensure free and fair elections.
“As a commission, we are working hand in hand with the political parties and our major stakeholders” EC’s director of Election said.
Samuel Tettey stressed that ahead of the 2016 elections the Commission and security agencies are working closely to ensure peaceful and credible elections.
Discussing the rejected ballots of 25, 774, representing 2 percent in the NDC’s presidential elections, he added that although the commission is doing its best, the various political parties must educate its supporters.
He also called on the political parties – who he observed are the major stakeholders in any elections – to intensify education to its supporters on voting processes.
