The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it subscribes to the alleged inflammatory comments made by Chairman of the PNC, Bernard Mornah against the Electoral Commission.

Mr. Mornah at a press conference on May 26, 2020, organised by the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Register (IPRAN) said “I have nothing to run away from. The Electoral Commission is messing our democracy and we must do everything to resist and we will resist it. There is nothing that will allow us to sit down and allow this Electoral Commission to slip our democracy away from the peace and stability that we have enjoyed.”

His comments were described as unacceptable and was invited by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to respond to questions on his alleged comments to resist attempts by the Electoral Commission to compile a new electoral roll.

Mr. Mornah subsequently described his invitation as politically motivated.

The NDC in a statement signed by its Deputy General Secretary, Peter Boamah Otokunor has described the invitation of Mr. Mornah by the Ghana Police Service political puppetism and intimidation.

”We wish to state our unequivocal support for the caution Comrade Mornah offered to the EC at the said press conference, in respect of the potential outbreak of political violence at registration centers, as a result of the exclusion of the existing voters ID card from the list of identification requirements for the new voter registration exercise the EC intends to undertake. For purposes of emphasis, the NDC wholly endorses and subscribes fully to the comments made by Comrade Bernard Mornah,” the statement said.

”Indeed, the entrenched decision of the Jean Mensah-led EC to compile a needless, illogical and wasteful new voters’ register for the 2020 general elections has the tendency to spark chaos and electoral violence across the country. Furthermore, the continuous unjustifiable intransigence of the EC and flagrant disregard for stakeholder consultations and consensus building in the handling of the processes leading to the 2020 general elections is a recipe for confusion and democratic retrogression,” the statement added.
