The National Democratic Congress (NDC) refused to attend an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) scheduled for Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

The meeting was aimed at giving the various political parties the opportunity to review the December 7, 2020, general elections.

“The National Democratic Congress (NDC), declined an invitation by the Electoral Commission of Ghana to attend an IPAC meeting to review the 2020 Parliamentary and Presidential Elections which was scheduled for today, Wednesday 21st April 2021. The party took this decision because of the lack of candour, odious duplicity, and open bias that was displayed by the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission in favour of the New Patriotic Party in the conduct of the 2020 general elections,” the NDC said in a statement.

NDC in the statement signed by its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah justified the action saying it was to protest the supposed bias displayed by the Electoral Commission during the polls.

“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,” it said.

The party added that, going forward, it will review its relationship with the Commission.

Signed.
