It's been about five (5) months since Ghanaians went to the polls to elect a president and MPs for the various constituencies. There were a lot of concerns raised after the elections. The National Democratic Congress (NDC) was not pleased with the outcome of the elections and had petition the law courts. Unfortunately the case was lost by the NDC.
The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana chaired by Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa held an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) workshop for the political parties in the country. The aim of the meeting was to review the 2020 General Elections. It is being reported that the representatives of the largest opposition party in Ghana, NDC was not in attendance for the event. This raised some questions about the boycott of the meeting by the NDC but one of the leaders of the political parties does not seem to be perturbed by the situation.
Mr. Kofi Percival Apaloo, Founder and Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) said, the absence of representatives for the NDC was really helpful for the event. He said the NDC is always known to cause confusion at IPAC meeting hence the decision to boycott the meeting by the party was a blessing in disguise.
He explained how the conduct of representative of the NDC at previous meetings slowed down proceedings. He continued that the absence of the NDC representatives would not in any way affect the decisions which were taken during the workshop. He stated that there is over twenty-five (25) political parties in the country. Hence the absence of just one at the workshop would not ride over the significant decisions which were being taken during the workshop and have no option than to comply by them.
He commended the EC for its work during the 2020 General Elections and said he agreed with the various ideas the EC brought on board during the meeting.
Do you think it was right by the NDC to boycott such a meeting? Would it in anyway affect the decisions that were taken at the meeting? Share your thoughts by typing in the comment section below.
