The National Democratic Congress (NDC) 2015 presidential and parliamentary primaries have been characterized by missing names on the voters’ register.
The first of such allegation came from the Ningo Prampram Constituency, where one of the contestants, Sam George complained to the media that his name and that of about 3000 others have been deleted from the register. This led to a chaotic scene there.
This eventually led to the postponement of elections in the area by the Electoral Commission.
A similar complaint was also registered in the Korle Klottey constituency, also in Accra, where a candidate Zanetor Rawlings could not find her name in the register.
The daughter of former president, Jerry John Rawlings contesting the incumbent Nii Armah Ashitey and Leeford Kpakpo Quarshie to represent the party in next year’s general elections.
The NDC’s 2015 primaries has also seen a number of ‘hot spots’ across the country. Some of the perceived ‘hot spots’ include: Ledzokuku, Madina, Ningo Prampram, Ahafo Ano, Ketu South, Ho West, Nadowli-Kaleo, Bawku Central, Tarkwa Nsuem, Ekumfi, amongst others.
Over two million NDC members are expected to vote in the polls and about 728 aspirants are contesting in the race.
