The Upper East Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, William Obeng Adarkwa says it is not in the interest of the commission to reject any nomination at the regional or constituency level, indicating that persons that faced challenges with the filing processes would be given the opportunity to do the needful.

Speaking to GBC’s Isaac Asare in Bolgatanga, Mr  Adarkwa said the filing of parliamentary nomination which ended last Friday was relatively smooth but not without challenges, especially with the first-timers.

He, therefore, assured potential candidates that since the deadline for submission was duly met, all other issues will be addressed to ensure their full participation in the December polls.

Giving an update of the just ended exercise, Mr Adarkwa hinted that only six out of 51 parliamentary candidates filed their nomination with the NPP and the NDC being the dominant parties that filed in all the 15 constituencies of the region pending clearance for the EC.

Touching on political activities in the region, Mr Adarkwah said it was wrong for individuals or groups to attack political opponents just because they do not share the same sentiments.

He, however, seized the platform to advise persons involved in the defacing of political posters and banners to act responsibly in order to ensure a smooth electoral process devoid of violence and intimidation.

Mr Adarkwa further noted that the EC was doing it best to serve the general public in the best way it could, hence the need for all stakeholders to support their cause.
