The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, says he will not apologise for making disparaging remarks about the Electoral Commission boss, Charlotte Osei.
He told party supporters at a rally in Kumasi that Madam Osei landed her job by giving sexual favours.
The remarks have provoked outrage among some Ghanaians, who have expressed disgust at his conduct.
There have also been widespread calls for him to apologise for his action.
But speaking on his radio station, Oman FM, Agyapong said he would not apologise for his conduct because the EC boss was a “wicked woman”.
“Apologise to Charlotte my foot. Why should I apologise? I won't apologise today, I won't apologise tomorrow. Ghanaians are hypocrites. Charlotte is a wicked woman. It's important that I make Ghanaians know about her personal life too,” he said.
Agyapong claimed the EC chairperson was determined to rig the election if favour of President John Mahama.
“I won't spare her. In fact, I will do more. Those calling on me to apologise to her are wasting her time. In fact, I am going to say more. That woman is a very bad person," he added.
Meanwhile, the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide has joined a long list of people who have condemned Agyapong for his comments.
Weighing in on the development on Accra-based Peace FM on Wednesday, Kweku Baako described Kennedy Agyapong’s action as “unfair” and “out of order”, stressing that it would have adverse implications for his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“It’s not good PR. It’s not good public image for the party of which Kennedy Agyapong belongs. I’m telling you. He’s not going to be a singular loser in any public assessment of the matter. It has a collateral effect on the party that he belongs to,” he said.
