The Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) has charged the Electoral Commission (EC) to exhibit transparency in the declaration of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary results.

According to the party, declaring results, which do not represent the will of the people, is likely to promote instability in the country.

In doing so, she said, “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”.

In a release sighted by Citi News, the flagbearer of the party, Brigitte Dzogbenuku urged political parties to desist from hasty congratulations since such acts are likely to promote insecurities in the country.

“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”.

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 a 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 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
