Peace Council calls on political parties to use electoral laws in resolving differences

The National Peace Council has urged the major political parties to use the electoral laws in resolving their differences in the ongoing Voter’s registration exercise.

The council said that was rather the way to go than resorting to violence.

In a statement signed by the Council Chairman, Professor Emmanuel Asante, it said “The National Peace Council strongly believes that any outstanding election-related dispute can be resolved peacefully either through the judicial process or by alternative dispute Resolution mechanisms”.

Prof. Asante noted that the chaos and the laxity in the social distancing rule are indicative that the electoral management body has lost control over the situation.

This comes after the National Democratic Congress called for the enforcement of COVID-19 safety protocols at registration centres, with a warning that there could be far-reaching consequences of the Electoral Commission does not enforce safety protocols at the centres where mass registration takes place.

It therefore calls for calm, and commended political parties for peacefully settling their differences over the compilation of a new register.
