The Youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper East Region is prepared to stop Tuesday’s district-level elections in the region if certain decisions taken by the Electoral Commission are not reversed.

The Electoral Commission (EC) has scheduled Tuesday, December 19, 2023, for the 2023 District Level Elections (DLE). The tenure of serving Assembly Members, elected in 2019, will expire this month, necessitating the election of new Assembly Members for the next four years.

However, at the NDC Youth Working Committee inauguration ceremony in Bolgatanga, Abraham Lambon, the Regional Youth Organizer, declared that if the EC fails to allow 5 polling station staff to manage the election and insists on 3 staff, they will use all means to halt the election in the region. Furthermore, the NDC Youth will not permit the election to proceed if the EC does not use indelible ink during the process.

“I want to assure the EC and the NPP government that there won’t be district level elections in the Upper East Region if they insist on reducing the number of polling station staff from 5 to 3 and voting without the use of indelible ink. The NDC Youth Wing will resist it with our might, and EC must be ready to take responsibility for any mishap or mayhem in our region. It is on this note that we must, therefore, quadruple the efforts we put into the 2020 elections to be able to win massively in 2024.”

The Upper East Regional Youth Working Committee comprises doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, accountants, lecturers, bankers, teachers, students, small-scale miners, traders, artisans, and transport unions and will be working in various areas to ensure victory come December 2024. The NDC Youth Working Committee is chaired by lawyer Lamtii Apanga.
