NDC ‘runs’ to court over 2020 elections defeat

Ghana’s opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has noted its intention to go to court on Wednesday December 30,2020.

The party is hoping to get the Supreme Court overturn the results of Ghana’s December 7, 2020 general elections.

The ruling New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, incumbent Nana Akufo-Addo, was declared winner of the presidential election after polling 51% of the valid votes cast.

December 30th is the final day
of the mandated 21-days given under electoral laws for any aggrieved party in the election to file a legal challenge of the process.

A member of the NDC’s legal team, Rockson Nelson Defeamekpor, made the revelation in interview on Joynews Newsfile, hosted by Samson Lardy Anyenini.

He said NDC will be challenging both the presidential and parliamentary elections.

“We’ll go to court. We’ve made that clear… Certainly, by Wednesday, all these matters would be placed before the court,” according to him.
