The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, Mr John Dramani Mahama has reiterated that the party will not accept the results of a flawed election.

Mr Mahama made this known at a press briefing on the integrity of Ghana's voter register today in Accra.

Mr Mahama also mentioned that the Electoral Commission (EC) had taken what he described as "unacceptable steps" which have the potential to disturb Ghana's democracy.

“Our party the National Democratic Congress and I have unflinching commitment to our democracy and we will do everything in our power to ensure it continues to be an anchor of this country – peace and stability.

“Let me also remind you that in the past few years, we have repeatedly drawn attention to a considerable number of unacceptable steps taken by the Electoral Commission as presently constituted. These steps have the potential to wreak the democratic architecture that has seen the conduct of seven successful elections for the past twenty or more years.

"IPAC, a committee of representatives of all political parties, has assisted the EC to carry out its constitutional duty to the satisfaction of all. This collaboration has enabled the EC to improve on its transparency, credibility and confidence-building systems in electoral management. This is what also ensured the general acceptance of election results. Unfortunately, the EC as presently constituted has ignored valuable advice and consensus-building approach that has inured so well to the substance of multi-party democracy in our dear country.”
