Scores of National Democratic Congress (NDC) members and sympathisers in the Ho Central Constituency of the Volta Region have embarked on demonstration in the regional capital to express their displeasure against the Electoral Commission (EC) on what they described as flawed elections.

This forms part of nationwide protests by the Party’s hierarchy against the EC over the 2020 general election results.

The demonstration was participated by Volta Regional Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), some members of Parliament in the region and party sympathisers who marched through principal streets of the Ho municipality. They held placards that bear resentment against the Electoral Commission (EC) and its Commissioner, Jean Mensa amidst chanting of revolution songs.

 The demonstration ended at the EC’s regional office where the protesters were displeased because their expectation to present a petition to the regional director was not met.

The gate of the office building of the EC was under lock and key and no official was available to receive the petition.

The Volta Regional Chairman of the NDC, Henry Ametepe, expressed his resentment about the development. He stated that the Party will not accept the results declared by the Presidential results declared by the EC because it was not the true outcome of the 2020 polls.

The Member of Parliament for Anlo, Kofi Humado, who participated in the demonstration, was not happy with the EC’s declaration of some parliamentary seats for the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He stressed that those parliamentary seats in contention should be re-collated for peace to prevail in the country.

The Volta Regional Chairman, Henry Ametepe, and some of the protesters commended the security agencies in the region for their cooperation and professionalism during the demonstration and election period.
