The National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Mornah says he will honour an invitation by the CID.
The CID has invited Mr. Mornah for questioning over some pronouncements he made against the EC deemed to be threats.
According to him, the statement attributed to him deemed as a threat was only an advice.
Speaking on the Point Blank segment on Eyewitness News, Bernard Mornah expressed shock that his statement would be deemed a threat when he was only giving counsel to the Commission over its recent posture.
According to the letter inviting Bernard Mornah to the CID headquarters in Accra, he vowed to resist every attempt by the EC to compile the new register and that amounts to a threat.
Mr. Mornah is expected to be at the CID headquarters at 10 am on Tuesday, June 2, 2020. He said he has no problem honouring the invitation and will do so since he still stands by his words.
He further emphasized his view that the Electoral Commission’s posturing concerning the compilation of the new voters’ register must not be condoned.
He said the EC’s decision must be “resisted”.
The PNC, like the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is also kicking against modalities announced by the EC to commence processes for the compilation of a new voters’ register ahead of election 2020.
The Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new voters’ register has been met with mixed reactions from the political front.
Whereas the NDC and some opposition parties including the PNC are against the decision, the NPP and 12 other political parties have backed the move. Regardless of the resistance, the EC has decided to proceed with the exercise but subsequently, put it on hold following the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
The EC says it will observe the necessary safety protocols if the time comes for the registration exercise to commence and it intends to do this late in June.
