We will resist any attempt to rig 2024 elections – NDC to EC

An operative of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), James Agbey, has issued a statement expressing concern and cautioning the Electoral Commission (EC) and its associates against interfering with the results of the 2024 elections.

He emphasized that the NDC would not accept any effort by the EC to manipulate the electoral process in favor of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP). Agbey asserted that NDC operatives would actively resist and thwart any clandestine efforts by the EC to manipulate the outcome of the 2024 elections, even before the commencement of voting.

In his statement, Agbey conveyed a stern message to the EC and its collaborators, affirming the readiness of NDC operatives to resist any attempts at manipulation, stating, “We’ll not sit by and look on while the commission plunges the country into chaos. My colleagues and I are ready to stand up and be counted. We are ready to offer resistance to ensure that we have credible, free and fair elections in 2024.”

“I’m putting out this statement to send a clear message to the EC and its collaborators that operatives of the NDC will resist and prevent any sinister plot by the commission to manipulate the outcome of the 2024 elections even before the first ballot is cast.

He also criticized the EC for recent proposals to modify elements of the electoral system, such as the suggested early closure of polls and the abandonment of indelible ink usage.

Mr Agbey argued that the EC’s plans, especially the proposal to eliminate indelible ink traditionally used to prevent multiple voting, appear to be a deliberate attempt to rig the 2024 elections in favor of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He pointed out the potential consequences of such actions and criticized the EC for purportedly turning a blind eye to disruptions caused by NPP supporters during the 2020 elections, leading to the unfortunate loss of innocent lives.
