Former president John Dramani Mahama has stated that in case of any violence during and after the 2020 general elections, the Electoral Commission is to be blamed.

According to Mahama the conduct of the Electoral Commission's uncompromising attitude towards the elections could be a possible recipe for disaster.

He made these comments in relation to the EC's insistence of conducting new voters' register for the 2020 general elections when fisherfolks paid him a courtesy call.

“....that’s why we are telling Jean Mensah and the Commission that they should be careful because this country has been living in peace before they came and so they should do anything to create chaos for us.

“If they say they won’t listen and they will go ahead with their new register plans and chaos happens, they should own up and accept responsibility,” Mahama stated.

Meanwhile, the Inter-Party Resistance against the new voters' register has presented a petition to the Jubilee House

The petition to the presidency would mean that the current and former presidents of the country have been informed of their reasons to protest the decision by the EC to compile a new register.
