Charlotte Osei has been criticized for attempting to rig the 2016 elections

In a press statement, the EC described the allegation as untrue and unbecoming of a political party arguing that the opposition party erred when it rushed to the media with unfounded claims of non-existent plans to manipulate election results..

“It very regrettable for a political party to engage in pre-emptive allegations and suspicions with the intention to unnecessarily heighten public tensions ahead of the elections,” parts of the EC statement said.

The opposition NPP had earlier issued a statement describing as an illegality the decision by the commission to print the Pink Sheets without serial numbers.

Meanwhile, the EC is urging “political parties to desist from making unsubstantiated allegations about the electoral process and work with the commission to deliver credible and transparent elections to the people of Ghana”.
