THE NDC SHOULD IS ON A MISSION TO DERAIL THE EC FROM DOING ITS WORK
The opposition NDC, very typical of them, are bent on making monsters of the EC Chairperson and her Deputy Commissioners so as to have sufficient grounds to make a stronger case for the EC to jettison the compilation of a new register for the 2020 elections.
They typify a child who would cry irrespective of what the mother does for him. The child could even ask for the head of a crab to be given to him knowing very well that no crab has a head anywhere in the world. This child has signed a covenant to cry no matter what is done for him.
The EC invited all political parties for an IPAC meeting today. According to the NDC, the time on the letter from the EC to them was 10pm, not 10am as it is being bandied about. As a result of this, the NDC was not at the meeting at 10 o’clock in the morning, hoping to honor the 10pm one.
The NDC is being disingenuous on this matter. Let us even assume without admitting that the EC gave them a letter with the said time, didn’t the PNC, APC and other parties who are with them in their stiff opposition to the new register attend the meeting at 10 in the morning?
They knew that the time as captured by the EC’s letter to them was a typographical error. They knew the correct time the meeting would be held but deliberately stayed out of the meeting so as to have reasons to berate the electoral body.
The NDC cannot tell us that Bernard Mornah and Hassan Ayariga did not tell them the meeting would take place in the morning instead of evening.
It is instructive to note that all the letters to all the political parties had the same 10pm time, not that of the NDC alone! The NPP, CPP and all the other parties that attended the meeting had the same 10pm time but they attended the meeting at 10 in the morning.
Moreover, with recent upheavals, demonstrations and threats against the EC, who in his or her right mind would hold an IPAC meeting in the night? Was it not just yesterday that Bernard Mornah threatened there would be bloodshed if the EC refuses to listen to reason, whatever that is?
Under such circumstances, who would hold an IPAC meeting deep in the night? The NDC, a day or two before the meeting, was categorical that the party would not participate in the meeting because it has gone to court over the EC’s decision to compile a new register.
Under such scenarios, one can safely conclude that the NDC has only one agenda and it is to frustrate the EC and scuttle its planned decision to compile a new register for the 2020 elections. As for the meeting, even if a new letter with the date corrected was sent to them, they would have boycotted it.
