George Opare Addo, the National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed skepticism about the judiciary's impartiality ahead of the December 7 polls, stating that the party prefers to secure votes at polling stations rather than relying on legal recourse.

His comments were prompted by Interior Minister Henry Quartey's warning about inflammatory remarks leading up to the elections.

During an interview on Neat FM, Opare Addo criticized the Minister, suggesting that he should focus on advising his own party members, who have been making inappropriate statements.

"If he intends to offer advice, he should direct it to his own party members because they are making unwarranted remarks. They are declaring they won't relinquish power; they're suggesting the NDC can't win power," Opare Addo asserted.

He continued, "He should counsel Jean Mensa to ensure proper conduct at the Electoral Commission because no NDC member has made any statements inciting violence. All such remarks have come from his own party members, so he should address them."

Opare Addo reiterated the NDC's commitment to abiding by the law but emphasized that the party would not tolerate any form of cheating or exploitation.

"We are a law-abiding political party; we will adhere to the correct procedures, but we won't allow anyone to deceive us. We will ensure fairness, and this time around, we have expressed doubts about the court's fairness, so we will present results at the polling station; we will ensure the integrity of the ballots at the polling station," Opare Addo affirmed.
