Source: citifmonline. com - Following the Electoral Commission’s (EC) detection of 33 new errors on the nomination forms of the National Democratic Party (NDP) presidential aspirant, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, the NDP has accused the EC of victimizing it.

The NDP in a statement signed by its General Secretary said the development was “a clear violation of our human rights.”
On October 10, 2016 when the EC initially disqualified Mrs. Agyeman Rawlings, along with 12 other candidates, it identified just one error; one of subscribers on her forms did not meet the requirements of Regulation (2) (b) of CI 94.

The NDP and five other political parties thus proceeded to the High Court to fight the disqualification on the grounds of the single mistake and this culminated in a Supreme Court judgement on Monday [November 7] ordering the EC to extend the period of filing of nomination forms to close of day today [Tuesday].

“After the fighting the matter in court all this while, the EC has suddenly and unexpectedly shifted the goal posts in a manner that shows that all the EC wants to do is to disqualify us from participating in the coming presidential election by any means possible,” the NDP lamented in its statement.

“This cannot be what the Supreme Court meant when it ordered the EC to give us a hearing and permit us to comply with the law that gives us the right to an opportunity to amend our documents.”

The NDP thus dismissed the the EC notice of new errors as a “clear attempt at victimization by the EC” and called on the EC to “immediately desist from its oppressive tactics and with immediate effect reverse this illegal demand of us; else we would have no option but to return to court.”
