Former President John Dramani has described the Electoral Commission’s decision to prevent agents of political parties to observe the ongoing transfer of votes as a move to aid the ruling NPP in stealing the outcome of the 2024 elections.

He said the NPP admits that it will lose the 2024 presidential elections so they want to deploy gerrymandering during this voter transfer period to improve its chances in the parliamentary elections in the erroneous belief that it may rely on that to affect its presidential votes.

“The Electoral Commission’s decision not to allow agents of political parties to observe the ongoing voter transfer exercise points to only one reason— the EC’s avowed determination to aid the ruling NPP in stealing the outcome of the 2024 elections.” He said.

“The NPP knows and internally admits that it will lose the 2024 presidential elections. We also know that, as a last resort, it seeks to deploy gerrymandering during this voter transfer period to improve its chances in the parliamentary elections in the erroneous belief that it may rely on that to affect its presidential votes.”

The Electoral Commission (EC) has issued a directive that agents of political parties will not be allowed to observe the ongoing transfer of votes as a result of several clashes that have occurred at its district offices.

But the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama stated that the EC and the NPP agenda to rig the 2024 elections will fail.

“But as I have continued to repeat, and did the past weekend in Tongo, this collusion between the EC and the NPP will not work. They will fail! I am not surprised that the NPP and the EC quickly reversed a collective decision taken at an IPAC meeting last week to have political party agents present at the district offices for the transfer exercise.” He added.

“Again, they will fail because that strategy will not work. We have in our possession a long list of constituencies in the Ashanti and Eastern Regions and selected places in Greater Accra and other regions where the NPP is seeking to transfer thousands of voters from their strongholds to offset the NDC’s gains in constituencies we control.” The former president indicated.

Mr. Mahama nted that Ghanaians have already made their decisions to vote against the NPP government due to the economic hardships they are going through so nothing will change their decisions.

“Ghanaians have already decided to vote Akufo-Addo and Bawumia out because of the unprecedented hardships they are faced with due to their economic mismanagement and deep-seated corruption. I am certain that no amount of collusion between the Electoral Commission and the NPP can rescue the NPP on December 07, 2024.” Mahama stated.

“We have instructed our party at all levels to continue to be present and observe the transfer process.

I challenge the EC leadership to live up to its expected mandate and stop working in the interest of the ruling party.”
