The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, has hinted of a battle to be wagged towards Electoral Commission (EC) officers who manipulate electoral outcomes.
He made the revelation on Accra-based Starr FM, stating the outfit has the mandate to prosecute Presiding and Returning Officers who’re culpable in such acts.
“False declaration in respect of elections. The public should know this; I’m not the Supreme Court, but thankfully I don’t have to wait for the collation of the pink sheets at the Supreme Court to make a case. If you’re a Returning Officer or Presiding Officer, and you change results, I’m coming for you,” he warned.
He was optimistic the initiative will make simpler, the job of petitioners who want to problem the result of elections.
“Immediately you declare the outcomes, I’m calling for it, and I’m matching polling station to polling station; what you could have accomplished and if I discover discrepancies…then you have to be answering to me as to why from the switch from the pink sheets to the blue sheets, there’s a hole.
“So immediately you are not offering a reasonable excuse, I’m prosecuting you for that offence,” he added.
Meanwhile, the outfit, he famous, will start to roll out instances in October 2021.
