Disqualified Parties Angry Over Long Waiting Hours At EC Office

Representatives of the various political parties who are battling the disqualification of their presidential aspirants from the 2016 election over errors on their nomination forms, are angry with the Commission for making them wait for several hours at it’s headquarters Monday after a Supreme Court ruling.

Citi News’ Fred Djabanor, who was at the premises of the EC, reported that, presidential hopefuls, including Kofi Apallo of the Independent People’s Party (PPP), Kwame Asiedu walker, an Independent aspirant, and executives of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), thronged the headquarters of the EC, just about an hour after the Supreme Court’s ruling, to meet up with the Commission.

Policy Adviser of the PPP, Kofi Asamoah Siaw, told Eyewitness News that they spent close to five hours before they were given audience by the Commission, a situation he says may affect their ability to meet the extended period as ordered by the Supreme Court.

According to him, the EC handed them letters in which it pointed out the corrections they are to make on their forms, including some new errors. Mr. Asamoah Siaw told Eyewitness News that, they do not understand why the EC is suddenly talking about new errors on their forms, saying that it appears there’s an attempt by the Commission at all cost, to disqualify Dr. Nduom and others from the race.
