Contrary to claims by the Minority that the Electoral Commission (EC) refused to receive a petition they had sent to the headquarters, the electoral body has refused the claims.
A statement issued by the EC noted that the Minority did not inform the office of its intention to petition it.
According to EC, it later got to know that the Minority sent its letter today, Tuesday, December 22, 2020, the same day they planned to present the petition.
Earlier, this website published a story of a letter dated December 21, 2020, which was addressed to the EC Chair Mrs. Jean Mensa, informing her that they would petition on Tursday.
However, the EC says it was not aware the Minority was coming to petition the electoral body.
