One of the National Democratic Congress representatives in the Electoral Commission National collation centre during the 2020 general elections is set to testify tomorrow, February 8 2021.

Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo, who was in the EC strong room with Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte in his witness statement filed on Thursday said he was assured by the EC Chairperson Jean Mensa of addressing all their concerns before declaring the results.

Mr Mettle-Nunoo, who has filed his witness statement in support of the petitioner John Dramani Mahama in the ongoing election petition has expressed shock that no corrections were made when he reported the issues he had taken notice off to the EC boss on December 8, 2020.

The third witness, who is also a former Deputy Minister of Health, said he was misled by EC officials to sign the regional collation sheet for Ashanti region.

The NDC representative explained that he signed the sheet because there was a signature of the agent of Mr. Mahama on it.

Mr Mettle-Nunoo said he later realised that the sheet presented to him to sign was inconsistent with a tally of polling station results in the Ashanti Region.

In his statement, Mr Mettle-Nunoo noted that there were other concerns with the Eastern, Northern and Greater Accra Region collation sheets respectively.

“It is my express understanding that the entire election processes require very importantly a transparent assembling and collation of results so that no single vote of those who cast valid votes is left out of account and not one invalid vote is included in the votes taken into account.

“It is also my understanding that nothing other than votes cast validly at one of the accredited 38,622 polling stations should be factored into the collation af the 275 constituency collation centres through to the 16 regional centres and on to the strong room. At each stage, evidently corrections could be made in accordance with due process. I informed the EC Chair and she told me she would look into it,” excerpts of the statement said.

But the solution to these concerns was not to be as the EC Chair made a quick turn to declare the results in favour of the NPP presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo.

All these concerns, which was not addressed, he said undermined the credibility of the polls and cast grave doubts on the integrity of those assigned responsibilities for a free, fair and transparent election.

It will be recalled that the second witness for the petitioner, Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte had mentioned that the EC Chairperson deceived them into leaving the strong room on December 9, last year.

In Mr Mettle-Nunoo’s witness statement, he corroborates the claim by Dr Kpessa-Whyte.

“She said very directly that we should go and speak with the petitioner,”  he stated.

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

Published

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID in 2022.

One of the most important ways that societies intervene to buffer the adverse consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage is through the provision of social assistance. Social assistance refers to government programs that provide a minimum level of income support to individuals and households living in poverty.

When people talk about people receiving public assistance – food stamps, disability, unemployment payments, and other government help – they often have stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions of who those people are and what their lives are like.

This view of some people is affecting policy for the growing ranks of our nation’s poor, says a new report from a joint project from Save the Children and the Center for American Progress. The report compares the U.S. means of measuring economic opportunity and poverty with the experience of other countries, including five peer nations on the same income scale. It shows that people in many peer countries are given assistance as a matter of public policy, and these nations tend to view welfare programs as a short-term emergency measure.

Many countries like the U.S and spend significantly more taxpayer money on assistance than peer countries. After a few years of assistance, people on welfare in the U.S. have a much more difficult time finding jobs, according to the recent National Survey of Transitional Assistance Providers. These programs lend support either in the form of direct cash transfers or through a variety of in-kind benefits (e.g. food stamps and rent subsidies). Social assistance has been shown to strengthen the purchasing power of the poor and raise their material standards of living.

However, the government does not provide these social assistance programs to ensure marginalized populations are treated fairly, the report says. In fact, U.S. policy determines participation by significant factors, such as the stigma associated with poverty.

Many social programs determine eligibility before a person’s need for support. They include the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides an additional tax refund to working families. Similarly, these benefits are made available only to the poor, as with food stamps and Medicaid eligibility. The report finds positive signs.

Throughout the world, government assistance helps increase your odds of getting a job, incorporates receiving benefits (by lowering the barriers to receive), raises your wages, and reduces the chances of falling into poverty. This means people who receive the assistance are less likely to experience long-term poverty.

Some nations take a deliberate approach to the provision of social assistance because they view the social support system as integral to promoting social and economic mobility. In many cases, straight into the workforce programs and an expansion.

Access to jobs is crucial to moving families out of poverty. Unemployment and disability, for example, only benefit people when they work. A policy reform could make the social safety net more effective.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.
