Your Incompetence Will Not Force Us To Boycott The Elections – Asiedu Nketia Tells EC



The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has stated that despite the party’s lack of confidence in the competence and integrity of the Electoral Commission, they will not boycott the 2020 elections.

Mr Asiedu Nketia, in an interaction with the press, after filing the nomination forms on behalf of the party’s flagbearer, John Mahama insisted that the NDC remains fully committed to winning the 2020 elections.

According to him, the party has legitimate concerns about the way and manner in which the Electoral Commission has conducted its affairs, however they have resolved to contest in the Elections in the interest of peace.

“Currently, we have a situation where we have been called to file nominations where there is a big doubt as to which register will be the base document for the election. This register is called a provisional register because it has not been certified. We are going along because we do not want to create a problem for this country.

“The Electoral Commission has presented a form to us to be submitted and an oath to be sworn based on a law that does not exist. They have said on the forms that we should swear that the candidates have filed their assets according to PNDC law 280 which has repealed since 1998,” he said.
