2020 Polls: Mahama commends GPCC for supporting NDC’s street protests

The Presidential Candidate of the main opposition NDC, John Dramani Mahama has commended the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) for defending the opposition’s street protests against the 2020 election results.

The Council in a recent Press Statement urged the police and the security agencies not to curtail the right of the aggrieved supporters of the losing party, to demonstrate in line with the 1992 Constitution, despite encouraging them to strongly consider the constitutional option of proceeding to the Supreme Court with all the evidence they have gathered.

“The right to peaceful demonstrations by aggrieved parties to the electoral dispute must be upheld and protected by the security agencies, especially the Ghana Police Service without any hindrances”.Commenting on the intervention of the GPCC, the former President said the recognition of protests as an instrument of democratic expression by the Council is laudable.“Elections can be emotive and the EC’s incompetent handling of the Dec 7 poll leaves a sour taste in the mouths of all patriotic citizens.“It is important to hold the EC accountable to ensure that it purifies itself and rises again to be the leading electoral body on our continent, Africa.“I still urge all who feel outraged by the EC’s conduct to manifest their displeasure in a manner that is peaceful.”
