The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has served a notice to reject the December 2020 election results should the Electoral Commission of Ghana compile a new voter’s register for the upcoming general elections.
The former president of Ghana who serves as the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) H.E John Dramani Mahama made the information public during the party’s 28th Anniversary Ceremony Flag Raising Ceremony.
According to Mahama, it has never happened in the fourth republic where the Electoral Commission has presented a strange scene in the electoral processes close to the general elections.
Mr. John Mahama who was speaking at the ceremony categorically said, the National Democratic Congress wants violent free, fair and transparent elections.
“The NDC is committed to peaceful, free, fair and transparent elections in December 2020. But let no one and I repeat let no one however think that, the NDC will accept the outcome of a flawed election …..” He said.
The National Democratic Congress over the past weeks have rejected the Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new voter’s register for the December 2020 general elections.
Meanwhile, the largest opposition political party has filed a case at the Supreme Court to determine as to whether the Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new register ahead of the upcoming elections is justifiable or not.
The Supreme Court has earlier served the Electoral Commission to present the legal backing for eliminating the old voter card among others as the eligibility requirements for compiling a new voter’s register on 8th June, 2020 which the Electoral Commission did.
While the Supreme Court makes final determination of the case tomorrow, the Parliament of Ghana has earlier approved the CI of the Electoral Commission to use the Ghana card and passport as eligibility requirements for compiling a new voter’s register with a 106 Majority Members of Parliament vote against 92 minority Members of Parliament vote.
