The United Cadres Front (UCF) has expressed dismay about the call by the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) on the Electoral Commission (EC) to give an update of the voter register before the registration exercise.
A press statement signed by Efanam Felix Nyake, the UCF Secretary, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, described CODEO’s call as disingenuous and an attempt to ridicule the EC.
The statement said the EC had already issued an electoral road map to all political parties and stakeholders including CODEO and, therefore, for CODEO to demand that was unfortunate.
The statement said CODEO’s neutrality could only be maintained if it did not meddle itself in matters that border on partisan political positions.
The statement called for circumspection from civil society organsations and other democratic stakeholders as continuous attack on the integrity of an election management board could wipe out confidence in the electoral process.
