The Suhum Constituency branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Eastern Region has taken responsibility for the destruction of properties belonging to the Electoral Commission (EC).

Thugs from the party on Thursday stormed the Suhum office of the EC, ransacked the office and destroyed printers, disrupting the voter transfer exercise.

Officials of the EC in the constituency said they fear for their lives following the ransacking of their office.

Mr Mensah Worlanyo, EC's District Director said the group arrived in an NDC vehicle branded with the posters of President John Mahama and the parliamentary candidate in the area.

He said, “It took about two hours before they dump it in front of the office and left. We have checked the printer and it was not working.”

The Suhum Constituency Organiser of the party Kofi Wayo said they are sorry, attributing the incident to "miscommunication."

"As a constituency executive, the only thing we can say to the Electoral Commission is that we are sorry. Probably there must have been a miscommunication. They [EC] are there for us and we are there for them," he said.

EC offices in various parts of the country have recently recorded attacks over some disagreements in their respective areas.

Clashes between supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Central Gonja District has led to the closure of the EC office in that area.

Officers of the commission are said to have sought refuge at the police station after the two rivalry parties went on a rampage at the premises of the office over the on-going voter transfer exercise.

The commission has therefore suspended all processes in the area.

A similar incident happened in Buipe in the Northern Region where a clash between the NPP and NDC led to the shutdown of the EC office in the area.
