The National Democratic Congress (NDC) boycotted the latest Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 21, 2021, citing the Electoral Commission’s (EC)’s questionable handling of the just-concluded 2020 general elections.
The NDC rubbished the meeting which was supposedly aimed at giving the various political parties the opportunity to review the December 7, 2020, general elections.
“The National Democratic Congress (NDC), declined an invitation by the Electoral Commission… because of the lack of candour, odious duplicity, and open bias that was displayed by the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission in favour of the New Patriotic Party in the conduct of the 2020 general elections,” the NDC said in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the NDC said in a statement.
The NDC, in the statement, justified the action calling the EC and its Chairperson, Jean Adukwei Mensa biased not warranting to be entertained.
“It is the considered view of the NDC, that the current leadership of the Electoral Commission who supervised the manipulation of the 2020 general elections and the stolen verdict that resulted from same, lack the integrity, credibility and impartiality to lead any such discussions or review of the very elections they rigged,” the statement read.
The NDC has threatened to review its relationship with the Electoral Commission, following its shambolic handling of the 2020 election that led to some eight people dying from gunshots.
