General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), John Boadu has asked his colleague General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia to be personally attending IPAC meetings and stop receiving second hand information.

He says that will enable him cease complaining about decisions taken at IPAC meetings.

Speaking on Okay FM's ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he explained that most decisions concerning elections are taken at the IPAC meetings so if he, Johnson Asiedu Nketia refuses to be present at IPAC meetings, he will end up holding press conferences to confuse people. 

He explained that at IPAC, the parties have made decisions and concluded on issues concerning the registration exercise for the district assembly elections so he finds it difficult to understand why the NDC scribe will come out and be complaining about decisions they have been part.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it will resist attempts by the Electoral Commission (EC) to conduct the upcoming limited voters’ registration exercise at the district offices of the Commission.

According to the NDC, the move was not part of the issues upheld during the last Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting held in March.

Addressing the media, the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the NDC “differed very strongly” on the matter and is “opposed to any system of registration that will be limited to the district offices of the EC.”

“The parties never agreed with the Electoral Commission to limit the limited registration [exercise] to only district centres of the Commission.

The party insists that the EC must stick to the decentralisation of the exercise up to the electoral area levels instead of the 260 districts offices.

In addition, he said, “evidence available shows that it is a system that will end up disenfranchising many qualified potential voters.”
