Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, the Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has accused the Electoral Commission (EC) of manipulating collated figures from the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
Afriyie Ankrah alleged that the EC keeps increasing figures recorded from certain regions.
“It is obvious that whereas the Jean Mensah-Bossman Asare-led EC is covertly inflating figures emanating from a particular region they are reducing those from the strongholds of the NDC,” Mr Ankrah told the media.
Citing examples, Afriyie Ankrah at a press conference said the EC claimed that 26,886 persons had so far registered in the Offinso North Constituency, as opposed to the actual registration figure of 7,869.
He said the EC’s claim that 14,263 persons had so far registered in Afigya Sekyere East was also false.
“The EC diabolically reported 14,263 instead of the actual registration of 8,975, which was an addition of 5,288 registrants to those who registered.”
