Deputy Minister of Works and Housing, Hon Eugene Boakye Antwi says the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by former President John Dramani Mahama is throwing dust into the eyes of Ghanaians about the anomalies in the voter register.
According to the Subin Constituency lawmaker, the opposition NDC is wrong to conclude that the affected voters in the provisional register during the exhibition are their sympathizers since they are located in their strongholds.
Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Hon Boakye Antwi said that there is no basis for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to conclude that those who have been affected as revealed in the voter exhibition exercise are members of the NDC as every political party get votes in every polling station.
To him, the NDC is creating unnecessary tension in the upcoming general elections on December 7; thus, former President John Mahama who has been a Member of Parliament before understands that there is no polling station that political parties don’t get votes from.
He added that irrespective of the polling station which has recorded anomalies, it is wrong for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to conclude that only their party sympathizers are affected.
He pointed out that just as it is wrong for the NPP to conclude that their sympathizers have been removed from the voter register simply because there are anomalies in the Ashanti Region, it is equally wrong for the opposition NDC to say the same thing if anomalies have been detected in Volta Region.
“If it happens in the Ashanti Region, it does not mean that only NPP members vote and if it happens in the Volta Region, it does not mean only NDC members vote in the region. In any given situation, every political party gets votes from every polling station”.
" . . I disagree that EC has deliberately removed the names of NDC sympathizers. That is a weak logic; it is difficult for me to understand their conclusion," he said.
