Communications Director of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Ernest Owusu Bempah claims the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is plotting to thwart the efforts of Madam Konadu Agyemang -Rawlings in contesting this year’s presidential elections.

The sharp tongued officer is of the view that the NDC is scheming get rid of Madam Agyeman-Rawlings’ name from the ballot roll in the scheduled Presidential elections because of its fear the NDP can dislodge its dominance in the Volta region.

“There are plots by some detractors to get rid of Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings name from the ballot paper just as in 2012 elections. We have all the first-hand information on such plots. When it comes to the elections the ruling NDC cannot stand the NDP in the Volta Region which the ruling party claims is it’s stronghold. If the NDP goes to the area and campaigns there’s no way the NDC will get the outrageous votes it gets from the region during elections. The NDP is stronger than the NDC in the Volta Region and that is a fact. This time around the NDC will not get the chance to do its dirty work again” Mr. Bempah rendered.

The Electoral Commission disqualified Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings ahead of the 2012 election after she supposedly failed to properly fill out her nomination forms and submit the forms before deadline date but the NDP holds forces arrayed against it made sure their candidate could not stand for the election.

Mr. Bempah made the claims when he was engaged on Kasapa FM’s ‘Si Me So’ show.
