- EC says some actions of the opposition NDC are gradually becoming a cause to worry for the democracy of the country
- He said Jean Mensa's administration has so far exhibited efforts aimed at deepening the country’s democratic credentials
The Electoral Commission (EC) says some actions of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are gradually becoming a cause to worry for the peace and stability in the country.
The Deputy Chairperson at the EC, Dr Bossman Asare is rather of the view that, the schemes of the party are having dire consequences on Ghana’s democracy.
He insisted that the Jean Mensa administration has so far exhibited efforts aimed at deepening the country’s democratic credentials.
“I think if there is anyone who is becoming a threat or a potential threat to the democracy we are practising in our country, then I will rather say that it is the posture of the NDC. Since this new Commission took over we have noticed some of the things that have transpired.
So we as a commission we have seen a particular pattern of the NDC. So I don’t see why the NDC will turn around and accuse the Chairperson that her actions were a threat to democracy. This is the only Commission that is committed to Ghana’s democracy because we are operating within the law,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Electoral Commission (EC) have clashed over the conduct of the upcoming limited registration exercise at EC’s district offices.

The general secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, accused the Commission of treating Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) members with contempt.
According to him, the parties' IPAC meeting mounted stiff opposition to the approach adopted by the EC to conduct the limited registration exercise, arguing that it would disenfranchise potential voters.
The NDC believes the EC’s decision to violate its own laws, is a recipe for chaos.
