Elvis Afriyie Ankrah

The opposition NDC is alleging that there have been ballot stuffing in some polling stations across the country.

Speaking at a press conference, the party’s Director of Election, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, stated that already thumb printed “presidential” ballots are being added to ballot boxes illegally to help push the numbers of the ruling NPP.

He stated that the perpetrators have legitimate EC ballot and stamps adding the NDC sources say the act will intensify between 3 pm and 5 pm.

“It is not peculiar to the Ashanti Region. We have reports of ballot stuffing in Greater Accra Region, Eastern Region, Central Region, and specifically in Bimbilla. In Ejisu someone was arrested with thumb printed ballots,” Mr Ankrah said.

He added that the NDC sources claim NPP Chairman for Kwabre is the one in charge of the “ballot stuffing operation across the country.”

Mr Ankrah also alleged that to help the election go in favour of the NPP, police have also been instructed not to escort ballot boxes to the collation centres.

He urged all NDC supporters to go to their polling stations to ensure that the party is not robbed of their success.

He explained that it is important citizens remain vigilant and monitor the election process to help put a stop to illegal acts.
