The Daily Graphic calls for guided utterances during the NDC’s election petition before the Supreme Court. It notes with concern that memories from the first election petition were characterized by irresponsible statements by some supporters of the protagonists and some members of the political party that sought to scandalize the Supreme Court. Fortunately, the court brought those individuals whose actions were in contempt before it to face the music. The Graphic therefore notes that democracy will be consolidated if followers are measured in their commentaries on proceedings in the election petition.
The Ghanaian Times says it has followed the debate by the NPP and NDC on who should be considered a majority in parliament and admits that the issue is unprecedented and complex. Nonetheless, it can only be addressed by members of the august house if cool heads prevail as mediation is sought from some prominent citizens. The paper looks forward to a civil deliberation as Parliament reconvenes today and not descend to the shameful level it did last week for the benefit of the country.
