Politics of Tuesday, 10 September 2013
A former National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party has rubbished suggestions by the Electoral Commission to the various political parties to submit proposals for electoral reforms.
Anthony Karbo said the EC’s credibility is now tainted and for that matter, it does not have moral obligation to call for and lead discussions on reforms in the country's electoral system.
The EC in a letter dated September 5, 2013, requested political parties to submit proposals for electoral reforms a week after the Supreme Court dismissed a petition challenging the outcome of the 2012 presidential election.
But the NPP says nothing positive will come out of the EC's move.
Speaking on Dwaso Nsem on Adom FM Tuesday, Mr. Karbo who once failed to represent the Lawra Constituency in Parliament stated that, per the Supreme Court verdict, there was nothing wrong regarding the EC's conduct of the 2012 general elections.
There is, therefore, no basis to call for reforms, he concluded.
