The former Chairman of the Peace Council, Most Reverend Emmanuel Asante says the National Democratic Congress has every right to register their displeasure of the election results.
He said the party should make use of the 42 days set aside for election petition to seek redress in the court and not on the streets.
Most Reverend Emmanuel Asante however said the NDC do not have the right to compromise the peace the country is enjoying.
He said “Former President Mahama and the NDC are saying they will not accept the results of the election, there is nothing wrong with that. They have every right to express their views, but they do not have the right to compromise the peace of this country in expressing their views. If they feel strongly that they have been given a raw deal, they should rather take the legal path to seek redress.”
The former Chair of the Peace Council also said the actions of the NDC puts a strain on the peace pact the two presidential candidates of the leading political parties signed prior to the elections.
“I am waiting to see that they take that step rather than hitting the streets, burning tyres and inciting people to match to different places to demand what they consider to be their right,” he noted.
