The National Democratic Party, (NDP) says it is not satisfied by the disqualification of the party by the EC.

At a press conference in Accra yesterday after the EC announced disqualified parties, flag bearer of the NDP, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings said by this means, the EC chairperson is deliberately practicing  politics of exclusion which goes against the laws of the land.

“In partisan politics, you bring people together but you don’t try to exclude people but she is definitely trying to exclude certain people and that is totally wrong and she is not even using the law,” Mrs. Rawlings noted.

According to her, the disqualified parties had no means of determining which voter is on the EC’s exclusion list as a multiple voter hence it is wrong for the commission to use that as a basis for disqualification.

The NDP founder says the EC should be blamed for the disqualifications and not the parties.

“Frankly, if indeed if what she had written on the paper is accurate, then the electoral commission should have put a list of those who have done double registration for everybody to see and that has not been done like that. So who has gone against the law, we as a party or they as electoral commission?

How come people carried two IDs and they didn’t know? How come? It shows that there is a flaw in their own establishment and that is where they should be looking at. They should look at the flaw in their establishment and stop looking somewhere else,” she added.

According to her, most political parties were agitating for a fresh voters register so that they would be sure that they are doing the right thing.

A proposal she said, the EC vehemently declined.

She described the act of the EC as totally unacceptable and lack of efficiency.
