“What it means is that, if the C.I. is handed in its present kind, it is not going to solely be unconstitutional, it can radically disenfranchise all these potential voters who for no fault of theirs are unable to acquire the nationwide ID card issued by the NIA. They might have been denied the best supplied for them beneath Article 42 of the 1992 Structure.”

The conduct of the Electoral Fee reinforces the NDC’s suspicion of collusion between the Fee and the New Patriotic Get together to rig the 2024 elections.”

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo added that the NDC will use all obtainable means to withstand any try by the EC and NPP authorities to rig the 2024 elections.

“As a celebration with a legit curiosity within the elections and given the excessive stakes of the 2024 elections, we’re merely unwilling to permit any manipulations earlier than, throughout or after these elections, and we are going to demand the strictest requirements within the processes main as much as the elections.”
