Ghana - Mrs Rawlings, Others Accuse NDC of Fraud in Election

Accra — Wife of former Ghanaian leader, Mrs. Nana Konado Agyemang Rawlings, yesterday accused the ruling party of subverting the electoral process in the just concluded elections in the country.

Mrs. Rawlings, who is the leader of the National Democratic Party (NDP), which broke-away from the ruling National Democratic Congress, described the 2012 elections as '419' in Accra.

The former first lady's expression of displeasure came on the heels of allegations of fraud levelled against the NDC by the presidential candidate of the Progressive Peoples' Party, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, who accused the party of stealing their votes.

The outcome of the poll has been rejected by the New Patriotic Party and its presidential candidate, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, has threatened to challenge the result at the Supreme Court.
