Sam Pyne, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has rebuked the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for declining an invitation by the Electoral Commission (EC) to attend an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting to review the 2020 Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
The NDC, in a statement issued by the party’s General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, “the party took this decision because of the lack of candor, odious duplicity, and open bias that was displayed by the Jean Mensa-led Electoral Commission in favor of the New Patriotic Party in the conduct of the 2020 general elections”.
“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 NDC maintained.
Contributing to Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme, Sam Pyne questioned the logic in the NDC’s decision to boycott the IPAC meeting stressing the EC isn’t the cause of the party’s defeat in the 2020 Presidential elections neither is it their fault that the Supreme Court ruling on the election petition went in favor of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
He asked the NDC if they will participate in the 2024 elections since they don’t have confidence in the EC.
“Now that they have boycotted this meeting and saying they have nothing to do with the EC, will they contest the 2024 elections?” he queried.
