 Ewurabena Aubynn, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Ablekuma North Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, has issued a stern warning, asserting that the party will not stand idly by as the Electoral Commission (EC) potentially influences the outcome of the December 7 polls.

Miss Aubynn expressed concerns over the conduct of EC officials, particularly EC boss, Jean Adukwei Mensa and her deputies, whom she accuses of bias in the upcoming elections. 

Citing instances such as the recent miscalculations during the limited voter registration exercise, Ms Aubynn highlighted a pattern of behaviour that fuels mistrust in the EC.

Referencing past electoral discrepancies, Ms Aubynn recalled the NDC's experience challenging election results at the Supreme Court, where the court emphasized the pivotal role of polling station activities in determining election outcomes.

During an interview on the Ghana Yensom morning show hosted by Otafrigya Kaayire Kwesi Apea-Apreku, Ms Aubynn emphasized the NDC's commitment to vigilance in exposing any potential electoral malpractices by the EC. 

She stressed the party's demand for fairness and transparency throughout the electoral process.

Turning to the developmental needs of Ablekuma North, Ms Aubynn lamented the lack of progress in the Constituency, particularly during the New Patriotic Party's 28-year tenure. 

She highlighted the Kwashibu Electoral area as a prime example of neglect, where residents suffer from flooding despite years of NPP representation.

All the fourteen electoral areas in the Constituency have teething problems, she noted. 

Ms Aubynn urged voters to reconsider their allegiance to the NPP and instead support the NDC, emphasizing the party's dedication to bringing meaningful development to the Constituency. 

She criticized the NPP's track record of failure in addressing the area's developmental challenges, urging voters to prioritize change in the upcoming elections.

As the December 7 polls approach, Ms Aubynn's warnings serve as a call to action for heightened vigilance and a plea for electoral change to drive progress and development in Ablekuma North.
