The NDC party has served notice that the 2024 general elections will be different from all other elections that have been held in this country.
According to the Director of Elections of the NDC, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, the party will no longer resort to the courts to settle any election dispute.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM, Mr. Ankrah said despite their loss in court, they are still convinced the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Electoral Commission (EC) colluded to rig the 2020 general elections.
“So if you have a Supreme Court that will not create the conditions for the truth to come out, no wonder they’ll come out to say that it was very transparent despite the issues that went on. That is why we are saying that okay, 2024, we have learned our lessons, and we’ll not go to court. We’ll settle it. Whatever, anyway, anyhow …” Mr. Afriyie Ankrah remarked.
As a reminder, John Mahama and the NDC contested the 2020 elections at the Supreme Court, however, in a unanimous decision, the court upheld the results as announced by the EC.
