Some concerned executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region are worried that the ongoing exercise to register its members has been infiltrated by individuals who are not loyal to the party.
They told TV3’s William Evans Nkum, that the current verification updates being undertaken ahead of its branch elections need to be stopped for the party to audit its membership list by matching names with faces at the branch level.
“It seems the register, we have ghost names on it because we have tried to call some numbers and the number is not going through and some too, if you call him or her he is saying he is not aware he is in the register,” one official said.
Another also indicated that “All we saw during the last elections was that our polling agents were not that all qualified to head our branches, most of them were not real NDC members.”
The NDC last week released the timetable for its internal elections approved by the National Executive Committee of (NEC) of the party.
All newly created Branches shall have new Branch Executive; Only members of a branch who registered by 2018 can contest; All members with their names on the branch register can vote, a notice issued on Tuesday May 10 said.
