The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor has revealed that the Electoral Commission wanted the New Patriotic Party(NPP) pick number four during the balloting.
According to him, the EC failed on its attempt to give a clue for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to pick 4th position on the ballot paper.
In a report filed by Peacefmonline, he said he has reasons to suspect that the NPP was given a headway in the first 4th position for their Presidential Candidate to appear on the ballot paper.
He said he was furious at the office of the Electoral Commission because the EC marked the balls which had the favorite number 4 position of the governing NPP but it failed to materialise.
“The EC is giving us reasons all the time to believe that it is making every effort to favor the ruling NPP to retain power but we are vigilante and we won’t allow it to happen.
The EC official leading in the picking of the first number which will determine which party to pick first, helped the NPP to pick number 4 and they started saying 4 more for Nana,” he asserted.
Otokunor further said the number one the NPP picked means that God wants to make Akufo-Addo a one-term President of Ghana; while the second position on the ballot paper for the former President, John Dramani Mahama shows his second comeback to the Presidency.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and the New Patriotic Party would be number one on the ballot paper in the upcoming December 2020 elections.
At a meeting at the offices of the Electoral Commission (EC), the political parties that were cleared to contest in the December 7 elections, were made to pick slots.
There was a first ballot to determine the order in which the political parties cleared to contest in the election would pick their slots on the ballot paper.
