Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Peter Boamah Otokunor has said that he and his part snubbed the forum organized by the Electoral Commission (EC) because they do not trust the credibility of Jean Mensa and her two deputies.

According to him the NDC decided to boycott the 2-day forum because the chairperson hasn’t treated the party fairly in previous meetings.

“First of all, we are questioning the credibility of current Electoral Commission led by Jean Mensa and the two deputies. We are questioning their credibility.

“We believe that they do not hold that independence as is expected of an electoral management body.

“The second point is that current IPAC as it stands with its current disposition and the disposition of the leaders of IPAC which is the EC chairs persons and the deputies is something that we must look at and find a proper position of IPAC, come up with clear procedures of handling meetings , when we smile at IPAC the EC chair will be angry and they can talk to you anyhow, you can’t smile at IPAC, you can’t make your point at IPAC when you descend on a position of the electoral commission”, he stated on Joy FM.

Otokunor also rejected Jean Mensa’s proposal to close polls at 3PM.
