2024 Election: EC leadership has no influence on election results- NPP Director of Election

The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Evans Nimako, Director of Elections, has stated that the election results will not be affected by the person holding the position of chair of the Electoral Commission (EC).

This remark came after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) declared it was illegal for the Electoral Commission (EC) to have excluded political party operatives from the current vote transfer process.

The EC’s order, which was made in reaction to violent altercations at certain transfer locations, was earlier ignored and defied by the NDC, which gave its agents orders to do so.

In response, Mr. Nimako stated on Eyewitness News that the NPP is expected to secure a sizable victory in the elections scheduled for December 7 and refuted the NDC’s allegations of conspiracy between the NPP and the EC to rig the results.

“We won’t dispatch representatives to the transfer hubs. We’ll have to wait and see what the EC and the police decide to do in this situation. You see, though, the NDC will not back down from its claim that the NPP is working with the EC to rig the election.

“The election is set for December 7th, and the vast majority of voters—roughly 18.7 million at this point—will cast their ballots in favour of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. You observed the electoral scenario when the EC was Madam Charlotte Osei. In 2000, under Dr. Afari Gyan’s leadership as the EC Chair, we won elections.

“As the NPP, we don’t care who leads the EC; we are strongly represented in all 38,622 polling places, and I promise that on December 7, our candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will triumph handily.”
