PNC Chairman Bernard Mornah
The national chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Bernard Mornah has described as surprising claims by electoral commission that its controversial 18-member election steering committee has not been suspended as reported by the media.
The media had reportedly extensively that the committee had been suspended following objections raised against its existence by the Interparty Advisory Committee (IPAC) at a meeting with the EC on Friday.
In a statement Saturday, the electoral commission described the media reports as erroneous.
“The Electoral Commission’s attention has been drawn to reports in the media that the National Election Steering Committee has been suspended. The Commission wishes to inform the public that the reports are erroneous and should be disregarded,” the statement said.
Commenting on the development, Mornah told Starr News the EC’s position on the matter appears confusing.
“I’m surprised that today they (EC) will come out and say something different, yesterday we were under the impression that they had put the committee on hold since their role appeared to be a duplication of what other committees like the IPAC were already doing,” he stated.
