NDC appeals to ECOWAS to call Jean Mensah to order

The largest opposition party, NDC, has urged the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to call the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) to order.

The party accuses the Electoral Commissioner, Jean Adukwei Mensah of engaging in voter suppression with its decision to conduct the ongoing Limited Voter Registration Exercise at its District Offices across the country.

Addressing journalists, the National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketiah urged the regional bloc to be proactive in safeguarding Ghana’s democracy.

The NDC Chairman also says the ongoing limited voter registration exercise, which commenced on September 12, 2023, has been riddled with several irregularities, particularly in the party’s strongholds.

“This irresponsible and unconscionable decision of the commission confirms the NDC’s long-held view that the Jean Mensah-led EC is determined to rig the 2024 elections through voter suppression. But she will fail because we are ready for them.

“Aside its potential to suppress registration and voting, the EC’s decision to restrict voter registration to its district offices can promote and facilitate gerrymandering as agents of political parties will find it difficult to challenge persons who may be bused from one constituency to another to register.

He continued: “Ladies and gentlemen, in addition to the NDC, there are 4 other political parties who are plaintiffs in the instant case at the Supreme Court. And as already indicated, the PNC has also thrown its weight behind the suit.”
