Former attorney general, Martin Amidu, has reiterated his claim that the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Madam Charlotte Osei, is planning to rig the December election.
His remark follows new reports that the EC pointed out an additional 104 errors on the nomination form of Progressive People Party (PPP)’s flagbearer, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, hours after the Supreme Court ordered it to extend the nomination period and allow disqualified presidential candidates to correct errors on their forms.
But since the court’s ruling, some of the disqualified candidates have complained that EC has pointed out new error on their forms that the commission did not tell them about before.
In an article sent to the media on Tuesday, Mr Amidu said he suspected that Madam Osei was using the Supreme Court ruling to change the goal post in her determination to disqualify all the 13 candidates and permit the rigging of the 2016 presidential elections.
“My worry is that the commissioner is still deliberately determined to rig the elections by disqualifying the 13 candidates and is wagering on the fact that before the Court interprets its decision there would be no further time left before the close of today 8th November 2016,” he said.
