Ghana’s Democracy Has Come Under Severe Attack – NDC Bemoans Over 2020 Presidential Election Results

The biggest opposition party in Ghana, National Democratic Congress (NDC) have bemoaned over the 2020 Presidential election results.

After President Akufo-Addo was announced as the winner in the just-ended elections by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, leaders of the NDC said in a press conference that they have rejected the presidential result without any reservation.

“As a party, we have had extensive consultations and detailed analysis of the outcome of the elections as announced by Jean Mensa, the EC chair.

“We have come to only one irresistible conclusion, that it is a flawed discredited election and therefore we reject the presidential result without any reservation,” one of the top leaders of the NDC, Haruna Iddrisu said during the press conference.

Mr Iddrisu further stated that Ghana’s democracy has come under severe attack—and they will make a decision to challenge the results declared by the Electoral Commission Chairperson.

“That (petition) was treated with utmost contempt and that we consider unacceptable. We also want to serve notice that the blatant effort even to deny us a parliamentary majority will be fiercely resisted.”

“This evening Ghana’s democracy has come under severe attack and needs some rescue urgently.

“If not rescued these attacks will foster and grow into future elections and that will disfigure our track record, as a true democratic nation,” he added.
