The National Elections Directorate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has served notice that it would reject the election results from some electoral areas following their constituency elections.
These areas are Atiwa West, Mpraeso and Afram Plains South.
In a press release, the party indicated that there had been an earlier directive by the Directorate for the postponement of elections in those constituencies however, the constituency held the elections disregarding the directive.
“The National Election Directorate wishes to place on record that the said purported elections in those constituencies are illegal and hence, null and void. The party does not and will not recognize those elections and their outcomes,” it noted.
The party also indicated that this decision includes other constituencies that have violated other directives of the Elections Directorate in the conduct of their elections, particularly the inclusion of branches that are excluded from partaking in the elections and the exclusion or inclusion of persons who have been either qualified or disqualified from being on the ballot sheet during the appeals process.
“The Elections Directorate shall publish a full list of these constituencies in the coming days. In due course, the party shall conduct elections in these constituencies to be supervised by the National Elections Directorate itself,” it added.
The NDC noted that it will sanction the culprits responsible for holding the elections in these areas against the party’s national directive.
