The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana says they did not plan to cause financial loss to the state following the suspension of the District level elections.

The Supreme Court suspended the District Assembly election, describing it as unconstitutional and not backed by law.

Public Affairs Director of the EC, Christian Owusu Parry speaking on Peace Fm said they did not plan for this to happen.

He said they were confident that they were on the right track but once the Supreme Court has given its ruling, they have to abide by it.

He agreed that a lot of money have gone down the drain however; there is nothing they can do than to start the process all over.

“It was not intentional to cause financial loss to the state…It was not our wish for this to happen…we didn’t plan to intentionally cause this. But it is a ruling so we have to abide by it,” he added.

However, NPP Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wougon, Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko has charged the District Assembly aspirants to sue the EC over the postponement of the Assembly elections and causing willful financial loss.
