The leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) has cautioned its party agents across the country against the Electoral Commission’s alleged intentions of deceiving them to sign “fraudulent” pink sheets for a reward.
According to the NDC, they’d picked intelligence suggesting that some District EC Officials have been persuading NDC Party Agents to come over to their offices or meet them at certain locations to sign fraudulent pink sheets they have prepared, for a handsome reward.
The party’s Director of Elections, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah in a memo sighted by Kasapafmonline.com, dated January, 22 and forwarded to all Regional/Constituency Executive committees among others warned that this is a criminal agenda to serve the EC’s parochial interests considering the current legal challenges on the 2020 general elections.
“We humbly urge all our gallant agents to ignore such calls and accordingly, hasten to report such acts to the Party hierarchy,” the memo said.
The Director of Elections in his memo further entreated the party agents to endeavour to act in the supreme interest of the party and resist all forms of temptations that come their way.
This comes on the back of former President John Mahama’s motion filed at the Supreme court demanding the Electoral Commission to provide them with original copies of the collated presidential results of the 275 constituencies among others in the ongoing election petition case.

Every election is determined by the people who show up, and democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely.
Some supporters of the New Patriotic Party NPP conducted an online poll today, March 3rd, 2021, to choose between two people as the party’s next favorite presidential candidate for the 2024 general election.
One gentleman who has always been in the New Patriotic Party’s presidential race since the time of former President of Ghana John Agyakum Kuffour is Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremateng, also known as Alan Cash.
The vice president of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremateng were the subjects of this online poll, which broke the silence and elicited a lot of responses from Ghanaians.
Following the election, many Ghanaians who had the opportunity to vote online for the NPP’s next presidential candidate did so in large numbers for the man they had been waiting for all along.

Supreme Court Will Finally Decide Today- Read Details On What Is To Happen
The much-anticipated Election 2020 Petition trial will be decided by Ghana’s Supreme Court today, March 4.
Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah presided over the seven-member panel, which had asked lawyers for the parties in the case to file their closing written addresses.
The closing addresses for the Petitioner (former President John Dramani Mahama), the First Respondent (the Electoral Commission), and the Second Respondent (President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo) had all been filed.
Dr Michael Kpessa Whyte, Mr Joseph Robert Mettle-Nunoo, both members of the National Democratic Congress, and Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the Party’s General Secretary, were the three witnesses called by the Petitioner.
The Supreme Court will decide whether there are any legal grounds for the petition and whether President Akufo-Addo has met the Article 63(3) threshold set out in the 1992 Constitution.
Before a presidential candidate can be declared president-elect, he or she must receive 50% of the total valid votes cast plus one vote, according to Article 63(3).
It will also determine whether the EC’s declaration on December 9, 2020 was in violation of Article 63(3), as well as whether the Petitioner’s allegations of vote padding and other errors influenced the outcome of the presidential election on December 9, 2020.
The Supreme Court dismissed the Petitioner’s applications to have the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Mrs Jean A. Mensa, mount the witness box.
