Minister for Interior-designate, Henry Quartey, has reaffirmed the governing New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) commitment to democratic principles in the event of electoral defeat amidst growing concerns from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) regarding the peaceful transition of power.

The opposition’s worries were sparked by recent comments made by President Akufo-Addo, which raised doubts about the incumbent government’s readiness to peacefully transfer power if they do not succeed in the December 7 elections.

National Chairman of the NDC, Asiedu Nketia, expressed these concerns during a press conference, urging the NPP to prioritize a smooth transition for the nation’s stability.

In response, former Greater Accra Regional Minister Henry Quartey addressed the media in Accra on Wednesday, May 15, reassuring the public of the NPP’s unwavering dedication to ensuring a peaceful electoral process.

He stressed that regardless of the election outcome, the NPP is committed to upholding democratic norms and facilitating a peaceful transfer of power, in accordance with Ghana’s democratic principles.

“As a politician, as a political party, it is our hope, it is our wish, it is our belief that by the grace of God, the good people of this country, the good work that we have done in infrastructure and in other interventions, they will give us another mandate,” he said.

He also noted that the NPP is working assiduously to secure another term.

“Perish the thought, and I say again, perish the thought, If they decide to give their mandate to somebody, we will handover peacefully and walk away, go to the drawing board and come back Insha Allah. But I know that the grace of God abounds and so we shall break the 8,” he said.
