The National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for the Asawase constituency, Muntala Mohammed has said he will recall for an audit at every polling station in his constituency if there’s a single case of over voting.
The comments of the member of parliament for the area comes after a number of individuals were arrested in his constituency for a number of voting infringements in some of the polling stations.
A gentleman was arrested in the New Zongo , Baba Laaden polling station for allegedly dropping a number of thumb printed ballot papers into the drop boxes. The gentleman was first approached and stopped by the EC presiding officer and later whisked away by the police.
According to Muntala Mohammed, the ballot papers had EC stamps behind the ballot papers.

“”I have told my polling agents, if there’s a single over voting, they should subject the entire thing to an audit “- Muntala Mohammed said to a gathered number of supporters and press.
