The National Democratic Congress has disclosed that the Electoral Commission on Wednesday rejected their petition that sought to point the EC to some irregularities in the provisional figures of the election prior to the announcement of the presidential results on December 9, 2020.
According to the NDC’s General Secretary, the gathering sent a petition to the EC to address blunders in the electoral results however it was rejected.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia explained that the EC didn’t regard to the petition of the NDC, something he says was a deviation from what occurred in 2008 when the NPP kept in touch with the EC and National Peace Council to address shortcomings in the results.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the NDC was overwhelmed by the mentality of the EC in resolving the issues.
“We set up a petition to the commission expressing our reservations and asking them to require a meeting at which we could all purpose the outstanding issues to clear path for the declaration of results that will be adequate to everyone. To our absolute disappointment, they declined our petition… we were treated with contempt,” Asiedu Nketia said at a public interview hung on December 10.
He added, “The Commission continued to do an act of the declaration of an outcome which made Nana Akufo-Addo the President-Elect in the 2020 elections.”
The NDC, therefore, has indicated obviously that they have rejected the results of EC to declare Akufo-Addo as the following president-elect.
“I need to confirm that we actually remain by our original position and that is to reject the presidential results as declared by the Electoral Commission,” he repeated.
The NDC have now declared to contest the presidential and parliamentary election results declared by the EC.
