High-pitched exchanges have been traded between officials of the New Patriotic Party and National Democratic Congress at the offices of the Electoral Commission over allegations the NPP is trying to smuggle in doctored presidential election results.

Dr. Tony Aidoo, former Deputy Defence Minister and Fifi Kwetey, NDC Propaganda Secretray of the NDC say NPP officials, including Kwabena Agyapong, are claiming figures from constituencies in the Ashanti Region are being regenerated to show turn outs of between 97 and 99 per cent.

Media reports said Kwabena Agyapong was heckled after he emerged from the EC Strongroom by the NDC officials who accused him being the source of the 'bloated' figures, alleged to be for Old Tafo, Suame and Manhyia constituencies.

Joy News correspondent Sammy Darko says it took the personal intervention of the Chairman of the Electoral Commission to cool down tempers, after assuring them of amicable settlement.
