The Ghanaian Times urges aggrieved parties in the 2020 electoral results to place the national interest above all things and maintain peace and stability, by using the laid down procedures to address their concerns and not resort to violent demonstrations. The Paper says the country is capable of solving the electoral problems through the court, which is a venue for peaceful resolution of conflicts. The Times argues that the violent incidents across the country does not speak well of a country that has been touted as a beacon of democracy and oasis of peace by the international community. It reminds political stakeholders, especially the two major parties, NPP and NDC of the peace pact they appended their signatures to, prior to the general election. While applauding, Former President, John Dramani Mahama for his commitment to peace and security by using legitimate means to challenge the election results, it adds it voice to calls to him to let cool heads prevail.
The Daily Graphic throws light on the fact that Ghana is experiencing a hung parliament for the first time. This is because the NPP and NDC in spite of disputes over some constituency results are set to equally share the spoils and there will be no clear majority in parliament. While the paper congratulates members of the new parliament, it believes the peculiar nature of the new parliament will benefit the country as no bills can be rushed. The Graphic urges the NDC not to use its numbers in parliament as a trump card to frustrate or unnecessarily delay the passage of bills and approval of loans.
