Politics of Saturday, 30 May 2020Source: Peace FMJohn Boadu, Kwesi Pratt clash over new voters registerplay videoManaging Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt JnrNPP General Secretary, John Boadu has jumped to the defence of the party's Campaign Manager for 2020 elections, Peter Mac Manu, over the latter's recent comments regarding election rigging claims against the party. He stressed that, with or without a new voters' register, the NPP will win the elections because they have a solid track record and so doesn't need the EC's help. Speaking on the same programme, the party's General Secretary sought to correct the misconception created by Kwesi Pratt that the NPP Campaign Manager is against the new voters' register. John Boadu told host Kwami Sefa Kayi that Kwesi Pratt's interpretation of Mr Mac Manu's response is misleading. "It doesn't mean Mac Manu is against the compilation of a new register.

Well, as was to be expected, the more legally righteous administrators of the Independent Electoral Commission went right ahead with the long pre-scheduled workshop, almost as if no such farcical injunction had been imposed. You see, one would have thought that the plaintiff and his associates and attorneys would go back to court to secure an order of contempt of the court injunction against Mrs. Mensa. But, as it turns, no such tactical and legal move was ever attempted, which readily informed yours truly that the plaintiff’s attorneys might have come to the grim realization of having royally goofed. Whatever the upshot of events, it well appears that the proprietary arrogance of NDC pugs like Mr. Nartey had been effectively put paid to. *Visit my blog at: [email protected]By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkMay 28, 2020E-mail: [email protected]ptimum.net

Rather, the decision to compile a new National Voters’ Register (NVR) was deliberately and extensively debated on the august Floor of Ghana’s Parliament and resoundingly approved before the administrators of the IEC decided to carry out the same. The stark and “unfettered” truth is on record for all interested parties to readily access the same. The question of the legitimate Voters’ Identification Card to be used in the 2020 General Election has also been conclusively resolved to demand any time-wasting re-visitation of the same at this juncture. The most logical question to ask here is the following: Precisely when did the political whims and caprices of the leaders of the National Democratic Congress come to effectively replace the constitutional mandates of both Ghana’s Parliament and the Independent Electoral Commission? Mr. Afriyie-Ankrah and his thievish cronies cannot have a more legitimate right to grabbing undemocratic power than the overwhelming majority of the Ghanaian electorate that auspiciously sent the payola-guzzling and double-salary scamming members of the Mahama cabinet packing out of Jubilee House in the wake of the 2016 General Election.

General News of Saturday, 30 May 2020Source: Class FMWe endorse Bernard Mornah’s 'we’ll kill each other' comment – NDCDeputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah OtukonorThe main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said it endorses and subscribes to the caution made by the Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Bernard Mornah to the Electoral Commission (EC) in respect of the potential outbreak of political violence at registration centers, as a result of the exclusion of the existing voters ID card from the list of identification requirements for the new voter registration exercise the EC intends to undertake. Mr Mornah who is a leading member of the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Register (IPRAN), a group that is kicking against plans by the EC to compile a new voters register ahead of the December elections on 26 May 2020 at a press conference said: “We’ll beat and kill each other” should confusion arise at any voter ID card registration centre during the forthcoming exercise. The Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service has since invited Mr Mornah for questioning over his statement and he is expected to honour the invitation in Tuesday, 2 June 2020 at 10 am at the CID headquarters in Accra. Reacting to Mr Mornah’s police invitation, the NDC, another party against the compilation of the voters register noted in a statement signed by Peter Boamah Otokunor Deputy General Secretary (Operation) that: “We wish to state our unequivocal support for the caution Comrade Mornah offered to the EC at the said press conference, for purposes of emphasis, the NDC wholly endorses and subscribes fully to the comments made by Comrade Bernard Mornah.”According to the NDC, the entrenched decision of the Jean Mensah-led EC to compile “a needless, illogical and wasteful new voters’ register for the 2020 general elections has the tendency to spark chaos and electoral violence across the country.”Furthermore, the NDC noted that the “continuous unjustifiable intransigence of the EC and flagrant disregard for stakeholder consultations and consensus building in the handling of the processes leading to the 2020 general elections is a recipe for confusion and democratic retrogression.”The party said the invitation of Mr Mornah by the Ghana Police Service is nothing but “political puppetism” on the part of the Ghana Police service and “part of a grand orchestration by the NPP government to intimidate and demobilise the front of the Resistance in its spirited opposition to the needless and illogical decision of the EC to compile a new voters’ register ahead of the 2020 polls.”The NDC reiterated that it is convinced the Jean Mensa-led Electoral Commission is determined to skew the Voter Registration process in order to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters in order to rig the 2020 general elections for President Akufo-Addo and the governing NPP and, they shall employ every legitimate means to stop “this evil conspiracy of the EC, NIA and the ruling NPP.”The NDC has, therefore, encouraged its supporters to rise in solidarity with Mr Mornah on Tuesday when he honours the police invitation at the CID Headquarters.
