According to the Electoral Commission (EC), it has disqualified Dr Nduom from the 2016 presidential elections because he was unable to raise the minimum required number of subscribers to support his nomination.
The details EC gave was that one subscriber Mr Richard Aseda (‘Asida’ on the Voters’ Register) with voter ID number 7812003957 endorsed Dr Nduom’s forms in two different districts (pages 21 and 39) in the Central region and with the same ID number in the Volta region.
