National Democratic Congress cries over shortage of shortage of electoral materials in volta region

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has fumed at what it describes as the acute shortage of materials in its strongholds especially in the Volta region.

In a release signed by the party’s Propaganda Secretary, Richard Quashiga, the NDC has raised these concerns with the Electoral Commission offices, but said nothing has been done about it so far.

Below is the full release.

NDC CONCERNED ABOUT SHORTAGE OF ELECTORAL MATERIALS IN ITS STRONGHOLDS

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is deeply concerned about the acute shortage of registration materials in the on-going biometric registration exercise in NDC strongholds, particularly the Volta Region. Since the start of the last phase of the exercise, most centers in the Volta Region have remained non functional. Complains to Electoral Commission officials have not so far resolved the challenge.

The shortage of especially Forms 1A and 1C, cartridges as well as laminates in NDC strongholds leaves us wondering if this is deliberate especially when our checks reveal the EC at its headquarters in Accra has more than enough of such materials. Our suspicion is heightened because of the person who currently is the Director of Elections, Mr. Isaac Kofi Asomaning.

He was the same EC officer who superintended over electoral matters in the Ashanti region in 2008 and created a bloated register there to the disadvantage of the NDC.

We are by this statement putting on record that Mr. Asomaning, has severally been alerted about the situation but failed to take action. We are hereby appealing humbly to the high office of Mr. Afari Gyan, the Electoral Commissioner to help resolve the challenge.

Thank you.
Signed
