The Electoral Commission (EC) is pushing for sanctions against thugs from the National Democratic Congress over the destruction of its properties in Suhum.
Thugs from the party on Thursday stormed the Suhum office of the EC, ransacked the office and destroyed printers, disrupting the voter transfer exercise.
The Suhum branch of the party has taken responsibility for the incident, saying it was due to miscommunication and apologised.
"As a constituency executive, the only thing we can say to the Electoral Commission is that we are sorry. Probably there must have been a miscommunication. They [EC] are there for us and we are there for them," Suhum Constituency Organiser of NDC, Kofi Wayo, said.
However, speaking on Citi FM Friday, the Director of Communications at the EC, Eric Dzakpasu, decried the criminal act.
He said: “Whether it is in the realm of politics or not people must be punished, law enforcement must work. Because the EC is not empowered to do anything beyond reporting to the appropriate authorities about this incident and some of these incidents happen and some of the security services know.
"In the case of Suhum, my colleague indicated that the people who perpetuated this act are well known in the community. They are known to the police and those around so why should be allowed to go free?”
