General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has expressed worry about the representation of the CEO of National Communication Authority (NCA) Mr. Joe Anokye on the composition of IPAC representing the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, this is a clear indication that the New Patriotic Party wants to rig the 2020 elections.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ program, he explained that they are worried as a party because a person who represents an institution of the government in power should not have interest in issues of the Electoral Commission.
“The National Communications Authority has the mandate to monitor our telecos and even radio and TV stations, so why should they be included in an IPAC meeting where an issue of the telecos been given a mandate in 2020 elections were discussed.”
“So why will you bring the supervisory institution to a meeting to represent a political party?” he asked.
“I think this should be a source of worry to all of us who are interested in ensuring free and fair elections come 2020,” he added.
