The Electoral Commission has disclosed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for the recent Kumawu by-election, Kwasi Amankwaa is not a registered voter in the constituency and yet he filed and contested the by-election.
Mr. Kwasi Amankwaa, according to the EC, is a registered voter in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency in Greater Accra and yet contested in the Kumawu by-election because he hails from the constituency.
Responding to allegations by the opposition NDC that the EC is working with the NPP to sneak an unregistered voter into the Assin North register, the Commission questioned why the opposition did not raise similar concerns in Kumawu.
“Why didn’t the NDC raise this issue ahead of the Kumawu Constituency By-Election? The fact still remains that the allegation by Sammy Gyamfi to the effect that the EC is working with the NPP to sneak an unregistered voter into the Assin North register is FALSE. It is untrue and we call on Sammy Gyamfi to prove this,” the statement said.
The Commission contends that over the years Sammy Gyamfi and the NDC have put out false claims aimed at maligning the integrity of the EC.
