Kojo Bonsu, an aspirant for the flag bearer position in the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has thrown his weight behind calls for the challenges with the party’s voter register to be fixed before the May 13 presidential primaries. This comes after Dr. Kwabena Duffour, another flag bearer hopeful, filed a writ at an Accra High Court, citing discrepancies identified in the voters register ahead of the primaries.

In his writ, Dr. Duffour argued that the party had failed to provide the required photo album register five weeks ahead of the elections as stated in the party’s rules. He raised concerns about the credibility of the photo album register and asked the party to postpone its upcoming presidential and parliamentary primaries until the proper thing was done.

Kojo Bonsu has indicated that the party leadership must take steps to rectify the challenges with the register, adding that the party needs to postpone the date of the election until the issues have been resolved.

For the most part, the NDC has rejected Dr. Duffour’s request, with some officials accusing his team of bad faith. They argued that the party had provided the photo album register in accordance with the rules and had given all aspirants ample time to inspect it.

However, some party members have expressed concerns about the voter register, citing allegations of multiple registrations and other irregularities. They fear that these issues could undermine the credibility of the primaries and the party’s chances in the general elections.

In a nutshell, the NDC needs to address the concerns raised about the voter register and ensure that the primaries are free, fair, and transparent. The party should consider postponing the elections if necessary to allow for a thorough review and rectification of any issues with the register. Ultimately, the party’s goal should be to conduct a credible and transparent process that will inspire confidence in its members and the public.
