The disqualified presidential nominee for the All People’s Congress (APC) Hassan Ayariga has said that his counterpart from the Progressive People’s Party must use the legally accepted means to channel his grievance to the Electoral Commission (EC).

Hassan Ayariga who was speaking on Accra-based Starr FM explained that the EC communicated their disqualification to them through letters and therefore a demand for redress must be done through similar means and not dialogue.  

“Dr Nduom probably will go and sit down and explain but that will not help him. He has to go the legal way, write a letter to them. Because they wrote to you they did not sit down and tell you that you’re disqualified. Dr Nduom should learn of these formalities and do the right thing.”

Ayariga said that he has formally written to the EC to rescind its decision. He threatened to file a legal suit if the EC did not comply with his request.

“I’ve written to the Electoral Commission and the Commissioners. Meeting her is not a legal thing. The legal thing is when you write a document to her. If  she fails to change her decision then I’m on my way to court.”

Hassan Ayariga and Dr Nduom were both disqualified from contesting in the presidential race in the December polls. Both of them have indicated that the EC is not justified to disqualify them hence their different approaches in seeking redress.

While Dr Nduom is seeking for a five minutes meeting with the EC to iron out the ‘adminitrative errors’, Hassan Ayariga has sent a letter to the EC to rescind his decision.
