The Ashanti regional Chairman of the National Peace Council, Professor Seth Opuni Asiamah has expressed his displeasure about what he calls the unnecessary criticisms being meted out to the Electoral Commission.

According to him, such verbal attacks on the EC are not ideal, saying “What is even more worrying is that we seem to be bastardising the very institutions that must give us the free and fair elections that we are looking for.”

Professor Asiamah made this known at the launch of the Ashanti regional Elections Early Warning and Response Group at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi.

The EC have recently come under some verbal attack from some sections of the public, particularly political parties and oppositions following the credibility of the country’s voter register ahead of the elections.

But Professor Asiamah believes any individual who has any concerns about the work of the EC should rather channel their grievances to the appropriate institutions.

On his part, the Chairman of the Council, Most Reverend Emmanuel Asante, advised all and sundry to desist from causing mayhem before, during, and after the elections.

“We have heard a number of people saying that this time ‘in case things do not go the way we expect it, we might not go to court’. That is what people are saying, but we (NPC) are saying that we (Ghanaians) cannot adopt that kind of attitude,” he said.
