NDC Old Guards Associations rejects Rawlings for inquest into vote “rigging”

NDC Old Guards Association in the Ashanti Region has objected to former President Rwalings’ call for a committee to investigate allegations of vote rigging in the just ended general elections.

The group affiliated to the ruling party says Mr. Rawlings’ suggestion to President Mahama is untenable because the opposition NPP had already decided to go to court on the matter.

Media reports have quoted the NDC founder as calling on the current President to set up an investigative committee to look into alleged malpractice in the presidential poll.

However, Chairman of the NDC Old Guards Association, Oheneba Asamoah Atuahene, told Nhyira FM such a move will make no difference.

He cited the NPP’s rejection of the 1992 presidential elections and subsequently boycotted parliamentary polls, but there was no investigation into the party’s allegation of rigging then.

Oheneba Atuahene also describes NPP’s intended court action as a “face saving move”.

He said the opposition party’s allegation of vote rigging at the various collation centres was an indictment on its own polling agents.
