Speaking to the media aftermath of the incident, a branch executive of the NDC in Suame Constituency Suraj Mohammed, indicated the action was to avoid being disfranchised.
“We realized that some of the names have been expunged. We called our regional chairman last Sunday and he met the Regional Elections Committee. The briefing suggested that the committee was relying on a new list, and we believe the register had been compromised.
“When we pointed this out to the committee, they told us they were waiting for an “order from above,” he said.
That notwithstanding, one of the irate youths added “We are expected to vote on Saturday (22 October). And so, if you tell me, you are awaiting a call from above then it means I will be disenfranchised. If the party wants peace, they should take steps to resolve this issue or else they will face our wrath.”
