General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has revealed that the party’s decision to boycott IPAC meetings in recent times due to the autocratic style of the current Electoral Commission leadership.
Speaking in an interview on Otec fm’s afternoon political talkshow Dwaberem, General mosquito as he’s popularly known said the Jean Mensah led EC has overturned the IPAC’s mandate of discussing electoral related issues to find solutions to it has been changed into an act of only informing stakeholders what they (EC) have planned.
According to him, there have been several election stakeholders in the country whom have tried stepping in to ensure lasting peace between the NDC and EC but all to no avail.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia told host of Dwaberem Dr. Cash that even the peace council and some CSO’s in governance have tried meeting the EC leadership to find lasting solutions on issues being raised by the NDC and other aggrieved parties but all have fallen on rocks.
He however assured that if proper measures are laid down, the NDC would surely be present at IPAC meetings.
