In a letter signed by three representatives of the six aspirants, Dr Yaw Akoto, Abdul-Nasser Alidu and Victor Kwadjoga Adawudu, they explained that issues are not being adequately discussed and conclusions documented.

In the letter which was copied to the Chairman of the Elections Committee, Mr. Kofi Attoh, the aspirants noted that the electoral processes are not following logical progression.

They also drew the attention of Mr. Attoh to the inadequacy of the guidelines under which the polls were to be held and requested that they would be developed and properly documented.

In addition, they posited that the printing of ballot papers could not take place in the absence of a credible voters' roll.

The NDC has recently been in the news for protesting against the newly-elected MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan.

The NDC MPs, during the inauguration of Lydia Alhassan, raised placards with the inscription 'bloody widow'.

Various agencies and the NPP slammed the minority MPs for such a protest, claiming that the inscription 'bloody widow' was irresponsible.

Meanwhile the NDC has condemned a commission of inquiry set up to investigate the Ayawaso violent incident.
