The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has said his party will keep demonstrating until their grievances on the elections are heard.
According to him, the street protests gives the NDC the power to mount pressure on public officers to correct the anomalies against the party during the elections.
In a report filed by JoyNews, Asiedu Nketia said demonstrating on the streets was constitutionally guaranteed as well as going to court.
He added that the party has resorted to the former and would go to court if the need be.
“That is a constitutionally guaranteed right of aggrieved people and then the constitutionally guaranteed right of aggrieved people to go to court is also available. We will be on the street till the right things are done,” he said.
His comments come after many people questioned why the NDC is urging its members to protest especially when there are other means to get their cases heard.
According to Asiedu Nketiah, during the Acheampong administration, the same strategy was used to make the government unpopular.
He added that the street protests helped win the disputed Sene West Parliamentary seat.
The NDC General Secretary added that the party will be challenging more parliamentary results including that of the Techiman South.
Meanwhile, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, John Dramani Mahama, has called for an independent audit of the Electoral Commission’s (EC) election figures.
The audit of these figures from the just ended elections, is necessary to settle the tensions over the declared results.
Mahama, however, assured that if the independent audit done by the EC is satisfactory he will be the first to concede and walk away peacefully.
