A former deputy electoral commissioner of the Association of Philosophy and Classics Students (Aphiclas) at the University of Ghana who resigned to contest the position of the President of the association has been disqualified by the vetting panel.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Univers News, Prince Mensah explained that the decision to contest the race was borne out of the fact that one Selma Yoyowah who had been tipped to win the race failed to appear for vetting. The deficit then gave credence to the need for open competition, thus the decision by Prince to resign his former role, a decision that was not opposed by the current president of the association upon initial enquiries.
Prince further explained to Univers News that he gave justifications to the decision to the vetting panel when he was invited. Needless to say, expressions of satisfaction by the vetting panel resulted in a vetting that lasted more than two hours. In the dying moments to the start of polls however, news broke that he had been disqualified by the panel, on some unknown constitutional provision which bars members of a vetting panel from contesting in elections.
It is important to note that according to a disgruntled Prince, there is no judicial arm constituted to deal with matters of electoral irregularities in the association. Consequently, the decision remains unilaterally binding and there is no way to secure an interlocutory injunction to stay proceedings on the conduct of polls.
This development comes on the back of a rumoured minor student seeking the bid as president of the association.
