The Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) has rejected claims that the by-race at Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency was damaged by brutality.
The EC especially protested a report by the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) that voters were scared by security officers.
No official clarification has yet been given to the 19.83 percent voter turnout aside the withdrawal of the biggest restriction party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), from the surveys because of brutality at the home of its hopeful, Delali Kwasi Brempong.
In any case, CODEO said the nearness of veiled security officers said to be agents of the National Security Council (NSC) contrarily influenced the activity.
The local eyewitnesses said the officers showed absence of comprehension of constituent principles and controls.
However, Chairperson of the Commission Jean Mensa, in an announcement on Friday, said her establishment rejects “the statement that the nearness of unarmed police, movement and fire benefit officers disturbed the gather information”.
“Stress that none of the security officers in any of the 137 surveying stations over the Constituency was furnished, giving voters the freewill to practice their entitlement to cast a ballot.
“In fact, the police and officers of flame administration and migration conveyed to the surveying stations were situated very a long way from the surveying stall.”
Ms Mensa lashed out at a few people and gatherings who need to connect the Commission to the viciousness.
Censuring what occurred at the habitation of Mr Brempong, the EC said its center is to “lead solid, straightforward and reasonable races that maintain the desire of the general population as saw in all the 137 surveying stations in the Constituency”.
