The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has filed the presidential nomination forms of John Mahama, its flagbearer amid further criticism of the Electoral Commission (EC).
Mr. Mahama, who is currently campaigning in the Western Region could not be at the EC’s headquarters in person.
The NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, submitted the forms on Mahama’s behalf.
In remarks, he complained about the limited time to file nominations as well as the absence of a certified voter register.
“The laws of the Commission indicated that an old register does not become extinct until a new one is finalised and certified. We have a situation when we are called upon to file nominations where there is a big doubt as to which register will be the base document for the filing of nominations.”
“It is unfortunate that a mature democracy like Ghana’s, we are having to go into elections as if we haven’t tasted democracy before,” he said.
