Senior Vice President of IMANI Ghana and lawyer, Kofi Bentil said the opposition NDC should take legal actions against the Electoral Commission so that it can have access to the EC’s document.
According to him, EC’s posture against the NDC as long as the documents being requested by the NDC is concerned is illegal.
He added that NDC has the right to information so a public institution such as EC should not deny any individual or organization that right.
“I find it most perplexing and retrograde that a Public institution will insist on withholding public documents and information from citizens, especially when those documents are important in determining a case.”
“I think NDC should sue the EC under the Right to Information and obtain those documents.”
“Ultimately I think the NDC won’t succeed but this ruling is patently retrograde,” he wrote on Facebook.
