I'm Confident EC Won't Rig 2020 Elections - Prof. Emmanuel Asante

The immediate past Chairman of the Peace Council, Most Reverend Professor Emmanuel Asante says he is confident in the Electoral Commission to conduct transparent elections on Monday, December 7, 2020.

He cautioned political parties, particularly the biggest opposition party - the National Democratic Congress, against discrediting the work of the Electoral Commission.

He noted that undermining the credibility of the Commission is detrimental to the peace and stability of Ghana.

“You will always hear political parties doing this because they will have to appeal to their followers some of whom will not even bother to sit back and find out whether what is being said is true. It can be at the detriment of the country and I wish that they can respect the very country they want to rule," he warned.

Rev. Asante was of a firm belief that the EC will not rig the 2020 elections.

“As far as I am concerned; with the little that I am privileged to know, they are transparent; they are doing the best that they can and I don’t think they are putting anything on the way to rig anything for anybody. It’s not possible that way.

"From my perspective, the EC has been very very very transparent and have always come out to explain things to the public and I think the media must do its own investigations and find out whether they are telling us the truth or are we to take what the political parties are saying," he asserted.
