“And we have a history of accepting results of the elections whenever we have believed in the integrity of the polls.”
He expressed worry, however, about the tension that has surrounded the lead-up to the December 7 polls, noting it is unprecedented in the history of the Republic that six months to the poll, the country is unsure of the register to use.
He hinted that the NDC will await the hearing of the Supreme Court on Thursday, June 11 “to determine whether we have a flawed election or we have an election that we have confidence in that the will of the people have been properly expressed”
