You Did Not Treat The NDC Right By Telling Them To Submit Proposed Reforms To IPAC – Gyampo Fires EC



Political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof Ransford Gyampo says the Electoral Commission were wrong in telling the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to submit its proposed electoral reforms to the Interparty Advisory Committee (IPAC) for dialogue.

According to him IPAC is not the right forum for a political party to present its proposals to.

“EC must receive it first then if it can send it to IPAC. It is not the right directive to the political party,” he said on Good Evening Ghana on Thursday August 12.

He added “IPAC is not a legally binding body, has no law backing. it It is not the right directive to the NDC. It is a misdirection.”

According to the commission, although they’re opened to suggestions and feedbacks, they do not deal with individual parties therefore it would be proper the proposal is put before IPAC.

“We don’t deal with individual parties, and IPAC is designed to promote multi-party views, so IPAC is the right forum for such discussion.

“So we responded to their proposals and asked the party to bring it to IPAC,” it said.

It argued that “there are some of the issues which are constitutional matters and that would require constitutional amendments and also execution from the executive arm of government”
