A Presidential aspirant of the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Ras Caleb Levi, has placed an injunction on the Union’s impending elections.
Ras Caleb said he had to place the injunction on the election which was scheduled for Wednesday, July 10, 2019, at the High Court because the processes have been fraught with a lot of inconsistencies.
A statement released by the aspirant said should the group fail to address the inconsistencies in the electoral processes they were likely to cause chaos in the elections.
“There are so many abnormalities in MUSIGA’s voters’ register and the way they want the elections to be conducted. If it was a national election with all the regions partaking, there should have been a regional album from all the regions for MUSIGA to present a list of members of all the regions,” the release noted.
“They’ve added everything in one album which makes it difficult for a person to know where their names are even though it’s in alphabetical order,” he added.
Ras Caleb has, therefore, urged the electoral body of MUSIGA to abide by the electoral principles of the Electoral Commission (EC) to ensure accuracy.
“Another thing is that any card-bearing member can vote anywhere; that is if I registered in Accra and I find myself in Tamale I can just go and vote which is wrong because in the national voting exercise you vote where you get registered,” the statement noted.
Meanwhile, the aspirant has also alleged on Hitz FM’s morning show, DayBreak Hitz, that everything going on is an attempt to rig the election in a particular candidate’s favour.
