Considering its rigorous electoral process this year, the EC wants Ghanaians to know that Charlotte Osei can’t rig the elections in favour of any party
Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Madam Charlotte Osei, has a word for cynics who have indicated she would rig the coming elections. The EC boss has said there is no way this year’s elections can be rigged because the commission has put in place strict electoral reforms, which will make the electoral process resistant to any form of rigging. The EC boss has assured the people of a credible and transparent elections in December.
Charlotte Osei who was speaking during a meeting with the Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs on Wednesday, said that there is no way any one can manipulate the results at the polls. Madam Osei who gave an analysis of the what the electoral process would look like this year, said she will be needing Superhuman powers to rig the election.
According to her, one who wishes to manipulate the results would have to be at the 29,000 polling stations across the country, to change the sheets of all the party agents who are there.
It doesn’t stop there; Charlotte Osei continued that to be able to favour a political party, one would have to go to the constituency collation centers, change the results on the sheets again and change the results on the agents’ sheets, before declaring it at the head office. This she said is very impossible to do, which means she would need “Superman’s powers” to rig the 2016 elections.

But considering its rigorous electoral process this year, the EC wants Ghanaians to know that Charlotte Osei can’t rig the elections in favour of any party. The EC boss has urged the people to believe in the credibility of the country’s electoral system.
