As the Ayawaso West Wuogon elections are currently ongoing, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it priority will be to guard ballot boxes to ensure fairness.
In an interview with citinews monitored by PrimeNewsGhana, NDC's Deputy National Youth Organizer Eric Edem Agbana said:
''In 2016 we saw what happened in this constituency, a number of electoral malpractices but we decided not to complain. We are going to be vigilant, we will protect the ballot to ensure that the right things are done and am telling you that if the election is credible and fair the NDC will emerge victoriously, I don't see the NPP winning this election at all''.
Currently, voters are trooping to the polling stations to cast their votes for their respective candidates.
The four candidates contesting for the Ayawaso West Wuogon seat are NPP's Lydia Alhassan, wife of late Emmanuel Agyarko (former MP of Ayawaso West Wuogon), PPP's William Doworkpor, Delali Kwesi Brempong of the NDC and Clement Boadi of Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG).
Also, the Electoral Commission (EC) has assured Ghanaians that the Ayawaso West Wuogon register is clean.
This follows criticism of the leadership of the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa by the NDC saying she may threaten the credibility of the election.
The NDC claims the EC has not provided a credible register for the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election. However, the EC said it will use the 2016 voters’ register to conduct the election.
