Tamale Metro office of the Electoral Commission (EC) has upheld an application filed by the Tamale central constituency NPP leadership which challenged the eligibility of 21 people whose names were captured on the recently compiled limited voters register.

During the exercise in the Tamale Metro Area, vigilant NPP polling agents at their various registration centres filled the ECs challenged forms in protest against the residential addresses and ages of 21 people.

As required by law, the Tamale Metro EC set up an investigative committee to investigate the NPP claims.

Both the challengers and the challenged were officially invited to meet with the ECs investigative body on Tuesday August 26, 2014.

The challengers led by the Tamale central constituency NPP Secretary, Musah Mutawakil, honoured the invitation but 20 of the challenged ignored the ECs invitation.

Only one of the challenged appeared before the ECs investigative committee and proved his case right.

After the committees sitting, Tamale Metro EC Director, Andani Naatogmah Issah explained to Citi Newsthat all those who downplayed the invitation will have their names deleted on the limited voters register.

He commended the NPP polling agents for their vigilance during the exercise.

Andani Naatogmah Issah implored the other political parties to take a centre stage in the ECs operations.
The Tamale central constituency NPP Secretary, Musah Mutawakil described the ECs decision as a victory for Ghanas democracy.

He said but for the timely intervention of the partys polling agents, the suspected names would have been smuggled into the limited voters register.

Musah Mutawakil reiterated the NPPs desire to collaborate with the EC to make the 2016 general elections free, fair and credible.
