Some branch executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, in the Upper West Akim Constituency at Adeiso in the Eastern Region, have called for a re-run of the recently held parliamentary elections on May 13.
The branch executives in the constituency numbering over 600, claimed the voting process was fraught with illegalities and rigging and are therefore demanding for re-run.
They alleged that the register was tampered with and that there were instances of duplication of names and impersonation.
Addressing the media at a press conference in Adeiso, the Spokesperson for the group, Henry Agbalati Kofi Hallo said they are determined to win the seat back for the NDC and that is why they are calling on the national hierarchy of the party to address the situation in order to get a united front going into the 2024 general elections.
Some of the branch executives who spoke to the media, called on the party hierarchy to put things in order in the party and allow for re-run of the elections to prevent apathy within the party in the 2024 general elections.
Three of the aspirants have also tried to petition the Upper West Akim Constituency Office of the NDC to rectify the alleged anomalies, however, their petition was not received by the administrator at the constituency office.
The Secretary to one of the Parliamentary Candidate aspirants, Vincent Adamptey noted that all their effort to serve their petition to the constituency executives has proved futile adding that the party administrator has refused to receive the petition.
