Take pictures of your votes, we need them for evidence – Nduom
The flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has urged his party supporters to capture their votes with their phones during the December 7 general elections.
According to him, the pictures will serve as evidence in the event of electoral disputes and confusion at the various constituencies on the day of the election.
“Take pictures of your vote to let everyone and yourself aware that you voted, and that you voted for the PPP. So that if there is a dispute, we will know here we voted for the PPP so that we can question where our votes are,” Dr Nduom said in Fante while addressing a rally at Kwesimintim on Sunday during his three-day campaign tour of the Western Region.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has indicated that voters may not be allowed to take their phones into the voting booth on the day of the election.
Director General of Police in charge of Operations Christian Tetteh Yohuno said the move is to prevent voters from capturing votes with their phones.
He believes that this is part of measures to ensure and peaceful and credible polls on December 7.
He further indicated that in line with international anti-terrorism conventions, handbags of voters will be collected before the process to exercise franchise begins for electorates.
