NDC expected to file election petition today

Barring any last minute change in decision the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be filing a petition at the Supreme Court to challenge the results of the 2020 general elections.

The party has rejected results of the elections since they were declared on Wednesday, December 9 by Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) Jean Mensa.

Protests have been staged nationwide by supporters of the party to express their sentiments.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken a firm decision to head to the Supreme Court to contest results of the December 7 elections.

The decision was taken on Tuesday, December 29.

“The NEC decided that the NDC will contest the results of the rigged elections in the Supreme Court and other appropriate fora,” a statement issued by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia after a NEC meeting announced.

“In addition, the party will continue all legitimate actions, including protestations, to press home its demands for the government of President Akufo-Addo to enforce the rule of law and protect life and property in Ghana and, in particular, to take all necessary measures to bring to swift justice those responsible for  the murders and injuries and destruction of properties before, during and in the aftermath of the general elections.”
