The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the largest opposition party New Patriotic Party (NPP) of planning with some officials of the Electoral Commisssion to rig the upcoming polls.
At a press conference held ahead of the final rally of the NDC, the campaign coordinator of the party Kofi Adams said they had in their possession an audio recording between the NPP’s “Mike Ocquaye, Lord Commey and a few others.”
“They were making attempts to influence these election officials to make sure results in some constituencies are worked in their favour,” he added.
Kofi Adams described the alleged act by the NPP as “an attack on our electoral process” of the country.
However, Kofi Adams said the party is not surprised by this act since this will not be the first time the NPP is trying to rig the elections. He was certain the plans of NPP to rig the election will fail.

He indicated that the party will report the issue to the EC immediately after the press conference.
“As a responsible party we will later this afternoon, lodge official complaint to the Electoral Commission, so that a position is taken on their officers who are involved in this activity.”
