Both 106 parliamentary representatives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Seventh Parliament of Ghana are marching to the headquarters of the Electoral Commission (EC) on Tuesday, 22 December, a caucus member said.
The march is planned to dominate the EC in order to reverse President Akufo-announcement Addo’s as the winner of the 2020 elections.
There have been a host of demonstrations by NDC backers around the country against President Akufo-EC Addo’s announcement as Ghana’s president-elect after the December 7 polls.
Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwami Dafeamekpor, Member of Parliament for the South Dayi Constituency in the Volta Region, who referred to the march on Onua TV’s 100 Degrees on Tuesday on Monday, clarified that the party’s leadership did not sit down to take it for granted by the EC.
The NDC MP said, “You wait and see what will happen tomorrow,” when the host, Kwame Tutu, asked what next after the string of protests by his party members, but delivering no results.
“We are marching to the EC office to express our displeasure with the EC,” he explained. We’re going to go to court. The NDC will go to appeal, but this sequence of demonstrations is just part of the procedure before that.
