The Electoral Commission Chairperson, Madam Jean Mensa has adviced that political parties are free to go to court.
Her advice was directed to political parties who feel they’ve been cheated in the December 7 polls.
She has adviced those parties especially the NDC to seek redress from court.
The election management body addressed this in a statement on Monday, December 14, 2020.
They endeared the parties to use laid down processes by the law to seek redress.
This comes following a series of protests and conferences by the NDC in rejecting the the outcome of the election.
The NDC expressed their displeasure over some conducts and results of the elections.
They claimed they won majority of the parliamentary seats and also claimed John Mahama won.
Following these claims, they rejected the results of both Parliamentary and presidential election.
Following the EC’s declaration in favor of Nana Addo, Mahama stated that they are putting measures in place to make sure they win as they projected.
He said they are deploying a team of lawyers and party officials to support and build capacities.
Ghanaians were all expecting the NDC to take the case to court or deploy a legitimate way to deal with their issue.
Nothing new has been heard from them as they go about rejecting the declaration with claims on the media.
It is to this that the EC has decided to give them a tip to deal with their problem.
The Ghanaians Electoral Commission is an independent body that is charged with overseeing election processes in Ghana.
Their work on the other hand is to effectively ensure confidence in the democratic process and then ensure its integrity.
Their motto; transparency, fairness and integrity is what they always uphold to help boost democracy.
Madam Jean Mensa, their Chairperson, in upholding to their motto, has decided to give the NDC an advice.
According to her, even if there is a mistake, the NDC, should then send their claim to the Supreme Court.
