Concerns have been raised about the possibility of having many rejected ballots during the election. This is due to the position of the NDC and NPP on the ballot paper as announced by the EC on Tuesday, October 20, after balloting.

Governance Expert, Dr. Eric Oduro-Osae says the situation where NDC and NPP appear next to each other may result in many spoilt ballots as there is the tendency that their followers may rush to cast their votes.

He, therefore, called on the NCCE and the EC to intensify education and sensitisation of the public on the proper ways to cast votes to avoid rejected ballots.

Dr. Oduro-Osae said the smaller parties are likely to face challenges by virtue of the position of NDC and NPP on the ballot paper.

He called on the EC to review its regulations to allow independent candidates to participate in the balloting.
