Wed, 9 Dec 2020 Source: www.ghanaweb.com

The Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) has urged the Electoral Commission (EC) to declare results for the just-ended December polls that reflect the will of the people.

In a press statement issued on Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the opposition party also urged the EC to investigate claims of criminality and infractions.

“We encourage the EC to thoroughly review all allegations of criminality and electoral infractions and to calm the tensions in the nation by announcing figures that reflect the true will of the people,” the PPP said in the statement.

According to the political party, it is concerned about the outcome of the 2020 Presidential race and the delay in declaring a winner.

“We are equally concerned about the various allegations of violence and possible fraud. We would like to place on record that the PPP shall be the first to congratulate the EC’s declared winner of the Presidential race.

“In this regard, premature congratulations are out of order, particularly at this time when the election is too close to call. Let us desist from this practice. It has a tendency to promote instability in our dear nation,” the PPP said.

LET’S BE CAUTIOUS IN OUR PRONOUNCEMENTS

The PPP is concerned about the outcome of the 2020 Presidential race and the delay declaring a winner.

We are equally concerned about the various allegations of violence and possible fraud.

We would like to place on record that the PPP shall be the first to congratulate the EC's declared winner of the Presidential race.

In this regard, premature congratulations are out of order, particularly at this time when the election is too close to call. Let us desist from this practice. It has the tendency to promote instability in our dear nation.

We encourage the EC to thoroughly review all allegations of criminality and electoral infractions, and to calm the tensions in the nation by announcing figures that reflect the true will of the people.

We would like to advise all security services to act in the interest of the people of Ghana, and not for or against any political party.

We call on all Ghanaians to be vigilant and awake by protecting the dignity of our electoral system, while at the same time being mindful that all actions taken in this critical period should contribute to preserving peace and stability in Ghana.

Signed,

Brigitte Dzogbenuku

2020 Presidential candidate
