The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said it will go ahead to hold its planned demonstration in Kumasi, against the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to compile new voters register, despite intervention by the Eminent Advisory Committee.
According to the party’s chairman, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, no formal communication has been received from the Committee for which they will take a decision to call off their demonstrations.
He said there is no basis for them to stop the demonstration at this moment, particularly since the EC has not shown any sign to further engage stakeholders on the issue or suspend its decision to compile the new voters’ register.
General Mosquito who was speaking at the Party’s ‘Moment of Truth Series’ in Kumasi, organized by their Communications Directorate, stressed that the NDC will only cease-fire if all the parties are brought to the table including the EC to thoroughly deliberate on the matter.
He said reports coming from the EC alleging to be a report submitted by a consultant to on the current biometric equipment has been falsified by the EC just to make their case.
The General Secretary of NDC said besides all the ‘weak’ justifications by the EC on its latest decision, the time is too short for any person to consider undertaking such an exercise as proposed by the EC.
