The NDC Member of Parliament for Bimbila, Dominic Nitiwul has accused the Electoral Commission of being in bed with ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.

According to him, the EC is engaged in an illegality by supervising the election of NDC Parliamentary candidates in yet to be created constituencies.

The Legislative Instrument(LI) 73 which is establishing the 45 new constituencies is currently laid before parliament pending approval but even before that is done, the ruling party has gone ahead to conduct election, an action which is seen by many as illegal.

While the EC has been sued against creating the constituencies, political parties and other Civil Society Organizations have pushed for the creation of the constituencies to be done after the December election as with four months to go for the election political parties will have less time to prepare their candidates.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme on Wednesday, Hon. Dominic Nitiwul stated that by the EC’s conduct, it has clearly demonstrated its bias for the NDC by seeking to give it unfair advantage at the expense of the law.

He added that the NPP as a law abiding party will not join the in the illegality being perpetrated by NDC but was quick to add that the NPP was sure of wrestling power from the ruling government come December election.
