OneGhana Movement, has calls for the arrest and prosecution of persons engaged in violence during the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
“OneGhana Movement commends voters and stakeholders for the peaceful conduct of the 2020 elections on Monday December 7. We are, however, disturbed about reports of pockets of violence the night of Election Day and thereafter resulting in damage to property, injuries and loss of lives. We call on authorities especially the police to arrest and prosecute perpetrators of the violence and breaches of various election regulations and laws to deter and prevent a recurrence.”
The statement further slammed the NDC, NPP for holding press conferences to declare themselves winners before the official declaration of the results by the EC.
“It was sad that the two main political parties New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) organised several press conferences claiming victory ahead of declaration of results by the EC. As this was the 8th elections in the 4th Republic, it was shameful that this behaviour which characterized past elections was repeated despite appeals against it ahead of December 7.”
