Vote transfer: You can’t collude with NPP to ‘steal’ 2024 election – Mahama fires EC

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama says the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to disallow political party agents at the ongoing vote transfer exercise is to aid the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in stealing the 2024 election.

Ghana’s electoral governing body in a memo has reversed a directive that District Officers of the EC across the country should allow party agents at its offices for the ongoing vote transfer.

According to the EC, the decision is aimed at controlling the violent clashes that have characterized the exercise and in pursuant of regulation 22 (8) of C.I 127.

Commenting on the development, the NDC’s flag bearer stated that the collusion between the EC and the NPP to “steal” the impending election will not work.

“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.

“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,” the former President stated in a Facebook post.

He continued: “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.”

According to the former President, “Again, they will fail because that strategy will not work.”

The NDC flag bearer further stated that no amount of collusion between the EC and NPP will save the NPP from defeat in the 2024 election.

“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.

“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. 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.”
