The Chair of the Electoral Commission of Ucoms- Accra,”MANDELA WIAFE EDWARD, , has proven he’s the “sweetheart” of the opposition NPP, thus, doing all he can to please his “paymasters”, Free and Fair forum pressure group has said.
In a statement issued Sunday June 05 to demand the resignation of all the members of the commission because all the members of the steering committee that is meant to help the EC conduct the SRC polls, Free and Fair forum (FAFF) reiterated allegations by another pressure group, Let January/ February Vote Count Movement (LJFVCM), that the committee is packed with NPP members and sympathisers, who are bent on satisfying the NPP.
Below is (FAFF) Prove.
Profile of our EC
- He is a former Tescon president of Takoradi Poly
- Assistant Secretary for Trobu Constituency 2013
Mr Mandele Wiafe Edward the Npp die hard fellow how do you want us Free and Fair forum (FAFF) and Let January/ February Vote Count Movement (LJFVCM) to expect you to chair over a clean and fair unbiased Election?
Secondly Ucoms is not ready for any Electronic voting system now, because looking at the time we think every student is an eligible voter and have to be educated on the used of this new system in which we don’t think Mr Darling boy and his team could do hence let our status code stand since we willn’t allow you to use that so-called EVS to rig the election for anybody.
(FAFF) is shocked to note that, the EC has turned down countless proposals for them to meet candidates .
(FAFF) regards the attitude of the EC as one “positively made evil”. It appears he did not earn his appointment on merit. As a result, he is so desperate to satisfy his pay masters in what looks like “the deal must be executed”.
Fellow Student, an understanding of verbal cues points to the fact that the EC, simply put, appears arrogant and full of himself. He has become defensive to any other stakeholder apart from the NPP. This looks involuntary because he has “the deal to protect”. Be it as it may, we doubt if the EC means well for UCOMS-ACCRA.
We advise the EC to re-think his ways since he has become too predictable with his actions. A little reminder from the U.S institute of peace research work on post electoral violence in Africa, shows that electoral violence are due to systemic and unresolved grievances which culminate prior, during and after elections.
(FAFF) and Let January/ February Vote Count Movement (LJFVCM) is challenging the Mr Mandele Wiafe Edward and Mr Do little SRC President Solomon and his Midget cohorts come out to deny being die hard NPP members, and having been present and spoken as a members of the NPP at an NPP function. We are set to expose them completely before the date for the Election. Indeed we expect them to stay for the show down and speak for themselves.
It is our position that the EC must step down from his position on this matter of enormous Students interest.
Regardless, the EC must dissolve the highly unacceptable and bogus steering committee now!!!
God save UCOMS-ACCRA
