Ghana EC urges NPP to go to court over election results

EC Chairman – Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan

The Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has urged the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to go to court if it has concerns over the recently held elections.

In an interview with the BBC, he said going to court is the only way to go if the party is unhappy with the results.

Ghana voted for the sixth time since the country turned to constitutional democracy in 1992 on December 7, 2012. There were eight Presidential candidates.

72 hours after the elections, Chairman of the EC, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan announced the results and declared incumbent President John Mahama winner.

But the opposition NPP has disputed the results claiming that polling officials have changed results to favour the NDC. The party has therefore, rejected the results and its executives are meeting to take a decision on the way forward.
