The National Democratic Congress has said that it will allow the Electoral Commission to change the results of the parliamentary and presidential elections.

Addressing the media, the National Communication Officer of the party, Sammy Gyamfi accuse the New Patriotic Party of trying to rig the elections of five parliamentary seats with state-sponsored gun violence.

He noted that the party “will not allow the EC to change the results” as it has its own certified pink sheets with which it is tracking the results.

Also at the same presser, Director of Operations of the NDC’s 2020 campaign, Larry Gbevlo Lartey said the party’s resolve not to tolerate any attempts by the election management body to “undermine the will of the people.”

“At this stage, we should be talking about the transparency and credibility of elections. And anything that seeks to undermine this, we should all abhor. Our support base will not accept a situation where the results will be undermined. We have all agreed on how these elections should be conducted.”

“Nowhere was it said that soldiers will be required at the collation centres and polling stations. If soldiers can shoot a man at Savelugu, then you can imagine the amount of pressure coming in. This is just an election. And the results can be tracked. Our military should be professional and stay out of the election. The law prescribes how the results should be declared.”

The party also insists that it has won 140 parliamentary seats.

“Going by our internal checks, the NDC has won 140 parliamentary seats, and we are on course to winning the presidency. There is a lot of pressure on people like me to ensure that this does not happen. There is so much tension brewing because of the illegality. Any attempt to steal this election will lead to grave consequences and nobody will like it,” Gbevlo Lartey said.
