2 Reasons Why EC Disqualified Dr. Nduom & Reported Him To Police

The flagbearer of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom was disqualified by the Electoral Commission and reported to the Ghana Police Service and the Attorney General over some ‘misconducts’ in his form.

According to the commission, it is unable to accept Dr. Nduom’s nomination because “the number of subscribers to his forms did not meet the requirements of Regulation 7 (2) (b) of CI 94. The details are as follows:

* One subscriber Richard Aseda (‘Asida’ on the Voters’ Register), with Voter ID no 7812003957)endorsed the forms in two different districts (pages 21 and 39).

The subscriber was found to be on the Voter’s Register in one district thereby disqualifying his second subscription and reducing the total number of subscribers to below the minimum required by the Law.

The same subscriber (Richard Aseda (‘Asida’) endorsed the form with different signatures in both portions of the nomination form. This raises questions as to the legitimacy of one or both signatures.

We will refer the matter of the possible forgery of the signature(s) to the Ghana Police Service and the Attorney General for investigation and prosecution in line with the following sections of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29):

Section 248: making false declaration etc. for office or voting;

Section 256: Corruption, Intimidation and personation in respect of election.”
