Since the declaration of electoral results, the opposition National Democratic Congress have rejected the outcome saying the results are flawed.
According to them, the Electoral Commission partnered with the governing New Patriotic Party to steal votes to make President Akufo-Addo win the elections.
The NDC is however, not agreeing to the option of presented their case before the courts to determine the fate of the case.
The party has said that going to court to present the case of the elections they have described as flawed election is an option and thus, should not be imposed on them.
Addressing the press at the party's headquarters in Accra, the NDC Communications Director, Sammy Gyamfi said the party is still gathering all facts to buttress its claims.
He added that after auditing the results, it will decide whether or not to go to court.
Sammy Gyamfi said although the NDC has the right to seek legal action, it also has the legal right to express its plights before the party decides to go to court.
“We have the right to go to court and we also have the right to protest this grave injustice. But whether or not we will exercise that option is in our bosom,” he said.
Recounting events from 2012, Sammy Gyamfi said when the NPP lost, they took their time to gather facts before going to court,
He added that during that period, there were more violent protests took place as compared to what they are doing now.
What moral authority does the NPP have to be advising us to go to court.
He added that, “The leadership will take a decision on that after we are done with our audit. We have not done anything contrary to the laws of the country by protesting”
Meanwhile, the NDC has been declared the winner of the disputed parliamentary seat in the Sene West Constituency in the Bono East Region.
