Election 2020: NDC threatens to declare their own results

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has threatened to declare its won results in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary results if the Electoral Commission does not rescind its decision to compile a new voters' register.

Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

Addressing the media in Accra, the Minority Leader in Ghana’s Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu quizzed why the EC wants to change a register that was used to elect President Akufo-Addo.

Isn’t it the same voters’ register that made Akufo-Addo the President? Why are they saying the register is outdated? Should we then question the legitimacy of President  Akufo Addo?… We’re committed to peaceful elections, but we will not accept the fraudulent results.

“Don’t take the NDC for granted this time. If they like, they should declare results, we’ll also declare ours simultaneously,” the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrissu warned.

Meanwhile the Minority Leader’s comment have been described as a careless and reckless one from a leader of the House.

The NDC and some smaller political parties have formed the Inter-party Resistance Against New Voters Register.

The group have embarked on a series of demonstrations in Tamale, Kumasi and Accra to drive home their concerns to the EC and the Ghana and international community.
