"To be honest, as for this further deliberation, the EC should throw it away"- Kweku Baako

The Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper Mr Abdul Malik Kweku Baaku Jr has urged the Electoral Commission of Ghana to abandon some of the recommendations it has tabled for future deliberation at IPAC.

The EC has proposed for future deliberation "validation of voters during exhibition to indicate that voters will be available for the pending election".

According to Mr Baako, this proposal is needless and should be thrown away.

"We don't compel people into voting in this country. If I don't vote, you cannot saction me. I think that further deliberation should be thrown away", he said.

In a related development, Mr Baako described the decision of the NDC to boycott IPAC as an exercise in futility.

He believes that just as the Electoral Commission cannot ignore a serious political party like the NDC, the NDC in itself cannot boycott any serious Electoral Management body.

"It is an exercise in futility. It is has no sustainable effect. They cannot sustain it.

Mr Baako said he is very confident the NDC will subsequently return to IPAC and participate in reforms thereafter.

"I can see in my mind's eye the NDC reviewing that decision and and going back to IPAC. The NDC will return to table. They will return to IPAC and and negatiate their way through and we will make strong reforms again".
