The campaign team of Goosie Tanoh is demanding that party executives cease printing of ballot papers for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) upcoming presidential primary election.
The election is scheduled for February 23, 2019, but Goosie Tanoh’s team says the party has failed to put in place the systems and structures for the redress of grievances.
As reported by Citinewsroom.com, the communications director for Goosie Tanoh, Abdul Nasser Alidu, who is also a member of the NDC’s Joint Technical Committee set up to clean the register, outlined some concerns.
Alidu is quoted as asking: “How many ballots are you printing? If you want to have agents in there, what exactly are the guidelines governing how they are going to monitor the ballot papers?"
“So for instance, today, if an agent is unhappy with the process, who do they complain to? There is no process for that."
Nasser Alidu also noted that his team was not even privy to the number of the primary.
Ahead of these concerns, some agents of some flagbearer aspirants petitioned the NDC’s elections committee and raised concerns having to do with the cleaning of the party’s electoral register.
Some six aspirants of the party had earlier petitioned the party, demanding a review of the guidelines for the upcoming election.
The six had previously raised issues with the electoral register and the choice of printing firm for the ballot papers.
The six aspirants had said the party should award the contract for the printing of the ballot papers to a trustworthy firm such as the Assembly Press, to ensure that some of the irregularities that rocked the party’s national executive election held in November 2018 do not re-occur.
