The NDC in the Savannah Region claims the Electoral Commission (EC) have recuited over 90 percent unskilled NPP members as Electoral Officers in the ongoing voter ID registration in the region.
Speaking at a press conference in Damongo yesterday, Regional Communications Officer of the NDC observed that majority of electoral officials selected by the EC do not have the requisite requirements for the exercise.
According to Malik Basintale, the criteria for selecting these officers has affected the output of the exercise after their assessment thus far.
“More than 90% of persons recruited by the electoral commission in the Savannah region are NPP persons and have no skills in basic registration procedures.,” he intimated.
“They keep goofing and are very slow in typing affecting once again the number of persons who register in a day.” Mr Basintale added.
He further alleged that the EC officials intentionally report late to the polling stations in some constituencies.
“There has been a deliberate late arrival of Electoral commission officials to centers and an example was 3 days ago at Nyantan in the yapei-kusawgu constituency, as at 11am the EC officials were yet to arrive at the center,” he alleged.
