Weed Out All Political Parties Who Appear When It Is Time For Elections - EC Told

A Governance Lecturer at the Central University, Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Antrah, has called the Electoral Commission (EC) to take punitive measures against political parties that only become effective when it is time for elections.

Dr. Otchere-Ankrah wondered why the EC allows such political parties to exist while the constitution has clearly spelled out the qualifications and duties before one can establish a political party.

Speaking on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” programme, he asked the Commission to “weed out those that do not deserve to call themselves political parties”.

He made this comment in relation to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) boycott of IPAC meeting with the Electoral Commission.
