We will consider going to court after audit of 2020 election results - Sammy Gyamfi

Following its rejection of the Electoral Commission's (EC) declaration of the Presidential election results on December 7, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stated that it will not rush to the courts to seek redress.

As a result, it has asked Ghanaians to refrain from calling on the party to challenge the poll results in court if it feels cheated.

Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer of the NDC, addressed a news conference on Thursday in Accra to update the media and the public on issues related to the election declaration. He stated that the party knows its right to go to the law court. Still, the party will only consider such decisions after it has audited figures from all polling stations across the country and gathered all relevant evidence relating to the elections.

He emphasized that the NDC party would not be coerced into hasty decisions.

Several groups, such as; The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer, have been urged to seek redress from the court if they disagree with the outcome of civil society organizations, religious and traditional leaders, and some Presidential Candidates who contested in the 2020 elections.

The NDC's National Communications Officer stated: We should go to court, according to some. Going to court is a choice. However, whether we will practice that choice lies in our chest. Allow us to finish our audit, gather our evidence, hold a meeting and make a decision for the party leadership.

How long did it take the NPP to go to court after the 2012 election? They documented their political race request case on December 27. We only had 26,000 polling places when they filed their petition. We currently have more than 38,000 polling places. It's December 17, and you have NPP individuals attempting to rush us to go to court," Mr Gyamfi added.

He revealed that the party had found various infractions, including issues of far and wide vote cushioning for President Nana Akufo-Addo, over-casting a ballot, nonattendance of the number of checked citizens on pink sheets and numerical blunders by the EC.

He stated that the party would continue to employ all legal options for the time being, including; the opportunity of articulation and exhibits to show their disappointment.

The NDC and former President John Dramani Mahama have consistently rejected the Electoral Chairperson, Jean Mensa,'s declaration of the Presidential election results, citing electoral infractions as the reason for their rejection.

As a result, party supporters across the nation staged numerous demonstrations.
