The Deputy Chairman of the Electoral Commission in charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Bossman Asare, has rebuffed claims that the elections management body is not on good terms with the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In the run up to the 2020 general elections, news broke of a spectacle at one of the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meetings at the Electoral Commission headquarters in Accra when the Chairperson of the EC, Jean Mensa and the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia reportedly engaged in a brawl.
This incident coupled with the rejection of the 2020 presidential results has left many wondering if the Electoral Commission will be better positioned to build consensus with all political parties ahead of the next election in 2024.
However, reacting to the fears, Dr. Bossman Asare in an interview on The Pulse on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 stated that “at the EC level we don’t have any problem with any political party, we have no problem with the NDC”.
Touching on the rejection of the election results and the subsequent petition by the NDC, Dr. Asare said “when we went to court, (looking at) the charges against the EC, I noticed there was nothing in it”.
