…Calls For Audit Of Branch Executives List Ahead Of Constituency Elections
By Cecil Mensah
Some aspirants on the ticket of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Asuogyaman Constituency of the Eastern Region, have called for the immediate audit of the polling station delegates list of the Constituency.
Speaking at a press conference in Atimpoku near Akosombo last Friday clad in red arm bands, Mr Goerge W. Nash, a member of the Government Communication Team and aspiring Constituency Propaganda Secretary said, the undemocratic behaviours of the executives in planning and the organization of the 2014 conference to elect Constituency executives to steer the affairs of the party for the next four years is in limbo.
He said, since the formation of the party in 1992, “we have enjoyed relative peace and brotherliness, but for the past twelve years no peace has been seen in the Asougyaman Constituency under the current leadership.
The NDC in Asuogyaman, cannot boast of any unity and togetherness because of arrogance, pride, disrespect, divide and rule tactics, employed by the current leadership, led by Mr Love Joy and Ibrahim Obiri Anyane.
According to him, the actions of the leadership culminated in the party, losing the parliamentary seat in 2004 and 2012 elections.
He said, since the aspirants filed their nominations to contest the various positions, of which they were vetted and declared eligible to contest, the Constituency secretariat has not communicated to them anything regarding the date, venue and more importantly made available to the delegates list.
He alleged that the current executives are behaving this way, because they are also seeking reelection, hence acting as players and referees at the same time.
He said, the Constituency secretary was using every means to manipulate the electioneering process to their advantage by hiding the date, venue and delegates list.
“The secretary has schemed up various ways to cheat in the forthcoming election by impersonating the delegates”, he said
They have, therefore, petitioned the regional and national executives to step in to forestall any future problem that might arise out of their actions and inaction.
