The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Mrs Charlotte Osei has described the errors in the nomination forms of the thirteen disqualified presidential hopefuls as traumatising.

She said it was traumatising because they had earlier urged all the presidential hopefuls to attach a lot of seriousness to the filling of the forms.

“We advised all the aspirants and the political parties to take their declaration seriously and all those aspirants disqualified made mistakes or errors which were very traumatising.”

She denied claims that the EC was only victimising the smaller political parties in the country.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic Newspaper Mrs Osei said: “we at the Commission are not there to victimise anybody; we are there to strictly implement and lean on the law.”

“There is the law and we all have a duty and responsibility to follow the law, particularly if we want to serve the nation at the highest level,” she added.

Meanwhile, the EC says it has referred all the electoral and criminal offences identified during the vetting of the nomination forms filed by aspirants for the 2016 presidential election to the Ghana Police Service and the Attorney-General’s Department for further action.
