The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is very concerned about some key persons working at the Electoral Commission (EC) that he believes are affiliated with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr Dramni Mahama doubts the upcoming general election will be free and fair after some incidents recorded in various registration centres in the ongoing Limited Voter Registration exercise.

He, however, called in religious leaders to speak on the matter of rigging the December election during a meeting with the Christian Ecumenical Council on Monday.

“This is a president who is appointing politically exposed people into positions of trust where they are supposed to be neutral and non-partisan and so people who have been communicators for the party, people who have been IT backstops for the party, today are Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. How do you expect them to be neutral and fair in what is happening?

“People who were patrons of TESCON on campus are today Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. But we want to wake up the conscience of the nation that the right thing must be done so that the outcome can be the will of the people.

“So going up to the election, We will continue to play our part. We will raise the red flags anytime we think things are not going very well. And we believe that the church community should also keep an eye and be vigilant in terms of making sure that the right thing is done.” Mr Mahama said.
