The Parliamentary candidate for the People’s National Convention (PNC) in the Nadowli/Kaleo constituency, Bernard Anbataayela Mornah has on Thursday, 8th October, 2020, successfully filed his nomination with the Electoral Commission to contest the 2020 parliamentary elections in the constituency.
Mr. Mornah, in the company of the hundreds of sympathizers besieged the office of the Electoral Commission in Nadowli where he successfully went through the process.
Addressing the media and well-wishers after filling, the vocal former PNC national chairman expressed satisfaction over the work of the EC in the filling process, “although the process was cumbersome and time consuming”. He therefore challenged the EC office in Nadowli to maintain the discipline and nationalism exhibited during the filling process.
Mr Mornah also advised the Electoral Commission to adapt and make use of modern technology as that will reduce the burden on officials as well as the time spent on each candidate in the filling procedure. “With modern technology, a single click could display the voter’s register of a particular electoral area instead of searching through the many documents to manually verify the many people who endorse the nomination form” he said.
Moving into the elections, Mr Mornah was very optimistic of wining the Nadowli/Kaleo seat. He cited his political maturity, popularity, lobbying skills and more importantly the love from his constituents as some of his strengths.
He acknowledged the Member of Parliament, Rt Hon. Alban S.K Bagbin for how far he has brought the constituency and insisted he (Benard Mornah) was the best candidate to continue from where Mr Bagbin left.
Benard Mornah is contesting the Nadowli/Kaleo seat for the second time, after a remarkable attempt in 2016 where the votes of the PNC candidate appreciated from 169 votes in 2012 to over 5,000 in 2016.
