105 new errors:PPP heads to Supreme Court over EC’s conduct



The Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) has indicated that it will proceed to the Supreme Court Tuesday, November,8 to seek redress over the conduct of the Electoral Commission (EC), which it describes as unfair treatment.

The EC after it lost an appeal against its disqualification of the PPP Flagbearer, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom on Monday, has revealed that it has identified a total of 105 mistakes on Dr Nduom’s nomination forms which must be corrected by close of Tuesday, a development that has stunned the party’s legal team.

The EC disqualified Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom and 11 other Flagbearers from the upcoming election after it found some anomalies on the nominations forms.

With respect to the PPP, the EC accused Mr. Aseda of subscribing to Nduom’s forms in two different districts.

The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the commission to allow all the presidential aspirants to correct the errors on their forms.

Speaking to Kasapa FM’s Daakyehene Ofosu Agyemang, Lawyer Gary Nimako vowed that the PPP’s legal team will ensure the injustice being done the party by the EC is stopped.

He is of the view that the EC is deliberately frustrating the efforts of Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom to contest the upcoming Presidential election, with the claim of new mistakes found.

“We are back to the Supreme Court, the EC Boss is not ready to conduct elections in Ghana, what she’s doing clearly shows she’ll not conduct the upcoming elections. She obviously wants a constitutional crises and we’ll not allow that to happen. You had all this while claimed the mistake on the nomination form is only one, from the High Court to Supreme Court you maintained that single error, so where from the 105 mistakes now, and you decide to spring this surprise on us so late. Who and who constitutes the 105, what is going on is sad, Ghanaians must rise and ensure that the right thing is done. The EC Boss must know that the well being of the country must be paramount in all their considerations, not the interest of individuals or political parties.”
