In a press released, the party has issued a statement to declare its latest line of action after a series of protests across the country following the December 7 elections.

The statement was signed by the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia

The NDC believes the just ended election has been rigged and flawed.

After the declaration of President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the presidential election by the Chairperson of the Electoral CommissionbJean Mensa, the law gives a 21-day window within which any aggrieved party can challenge the declaration, which expires on Wednesday, December 30.

In the statement, the NDC also revealed protesters will again hit the street till the right thing is done.

The NEC decided that the NDC will contest the results of the rigged elections in the Supreme Court and other appropriate fora. In addition, the party will continue all legitimate actions, including protestations to press home its demands for the government of President Akufo-Addo to enforce the rule of law and protect life and property in Ghana, and in particular to take all necessary measures to bring to swift justice to those responsible for the murders and injuries and destruction of properties before, during and in the aftermath of the general elections
