THE leadership of the Kwadaso Constituency branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has denied allegations that the due process was not followed in the election of polling station executives.
They stated that there was transparency in the system and anyone who complained was doing so for selfish reasons.
Reacting to a Daily Graphic report last Tuesday, which quoted a source that the entire process was flawed, the constituency chairman, Mr Parlance Kofi Owusu, said all the executives and other party members were duly informed about the processes leading to the elections.
“It is surprising therefore that an anonymous person could come out in the Daily Graphic to say that the process was not transparent.
“I am surprised that the person who granted the interview to the newspaper decided to hide his name,” he said.
Mr Owusu accused the former Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwadaso, Ms Josephine Hilda Addo, for being behind the moves to rubbish the elections.
He alleged that Ms Addo was bent on doing everything, including tarnishing the image of the constituency executives, to advance her political ambition
In another reaction, the incumbent MP, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, indicated that it was preposterous for anyone to discredit the elections because what happened was very transparent
He told the Daily Graphic that the rules governing the elections were laid bare before everybody.
Dr Akoto said the election committee set up at the constituency level made sure that all the 61 polling stations started the elections simultaneously and everything went on smoothly.
“I think that the constituency election committee should rather be commended and not condemned as reported,” he said.
