It emerged that there are fear and pacic within the ranks and files of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The phenomenon, this online news portal gathered has followed the recent preparation of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the Supreme Court to challenge the just ended 2020 presidential election result being declared by the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana.
This means the NDC would meet its deadline of the just four days left for the NDCN to legally hit the Supreme Court with its petiton to challenge the results of the 2020 election.
The latest development, as alleged by some party executives is that the Audit Team conducting the forensic audit on the electoral pink sheets have completed their work.
Video circulating on social media and across various platforms of some NDC sympathizers tell of a rather exciting mood the team had enjoyed earlier this evening at the party’s headquarters when they wrapped up their schedule for the mega task.
Since the the Electoral Commission declared the results of the 2020 election, the NDC have had a bundle of issues with it, and even suggested they won the election by a greater margin.
To them, the entire process was fraught with fraud and the flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama had threatened to expose the election management body on this. But then, they argued that they better prepare their comprehensive evidence before they proceed to the court.
The emphasis was to have a forensic audit conducted in the thousands of results sheets so the party leadership could determine the next action to be taken.
Should they weight much of a stronger case with the evidence, it must be expected that within the next few days left, the NDC shall file a petition and prove its electoral fraud and irregularities allegation in court.
On the other hand should they realise their chances are slim, they might probably concede defeat. But from the video, it’s evident they are convinced they believe they have a clean shot to take with the evidence gathered. This week, the party had held a series of press conferences to detail Ghanaians on some anomalies spotted in some results sheets in selected polling stations and Constituency collated results or summary sheets.
“As we await a final action by the NDC, most Ghanaians especially, and especially the ruling New Patriotic Party.and the government is working at a transition for next year on January 7 2020. The 2012 election petition took the nation some close to nine months of electoral dispute in court. This time round, the Chief Justice had hinted that they have reformed the court system to enable them determine any petition briugh before it in a month and a half period.
Should the NDC proceed to the court, this would be the second election petition ever heard in the apex court in the country’s politcal history.
