The Ashanti regional deputy director of the Electoral Commission (EC), Lawrence Sarpong confirmed this to Pulse.com.gh.
Speaking to Pulse.com.gh, Mr Sarpong said he is not aware of the disqualification of the 24 MP aspirants.
“Everything was sent to Accra and we have not received any information from Accra regarding the matter so I think the source of the story should check their facts and come clean,” he said.
About 240 aspirants from 12 political parties have filed to contest the 47 parliamentary seats in the region. 19 aspirants out of the 240 are contesting as independent candidates.
Thirteen presidential hopefuls were disqualified from contesting in the race to the Flagstaff house on Monday, October 9 by the commission.
The EC Chair who made the announcement cited some irregularities on their forms which include fraudulent signatures, the absence of required number of signatures, the improper filing of nomination forms among others as the reasons for their disqualification.
The disqualified nominees include Hassan Ayariga of the All People’s Congress (APC), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom representing the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Edward Mahama of the People's National Convention (PNC), Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Dr Henry Herbert Lartey of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) and host of others.
Meanwhile, nominations of President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Nana Akufo-Addo of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ivor Greenstreet of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and Jacob Osei Yeboah – an independent aspirant have been accepted by the EC.
The EC has, however, reported the false information provided by some of the nominees to the police.
