The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned over actions of the Electoral Commission and President Akufo-Addo.
On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, a scuffle ensued between NDC MPs who walked from the Parliament House to the offices of the Electoral Commission to submit their petition.
These NDC MPs defied orders from the police which created a chaotic scene.
Following this, Ex-President John Mahama in a post sighted by Newshuntermag.com cried foul over the conduct of the Electoral Commission, the Police and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the sitting President.
He claimed they are in connivance with Nana Akufo-Addo to fraudulently keep the Techiman South seat on the side of the NPP.
Ex-President Mahama wrote on Facebook: “Tuesday was a sad day for Ghana’s democracy when the Minority Members of Ghana’s Parliament were prevented from presenting a petition to the Electoral Commission in respect of the recent Parliamentary election in Techiman South. But let me congratulate the Minority Leader and the Caucus for stepping out boldly in defence of the democratic rights of Ghanaians.
“The conduct of the Electoral Commission (EC), with the tacit support of the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo, using security personnel acting capriciously even towards Members of Parliament is not something anyone could have envisaged in our beloved country in the course of our 4th Republic.
Clearly the EC and its Chairperson are in connivance with Nana Akufo-Addo to fraudulently keep the Techiman South seat on the NPP side. This is a clear subversion of the will of the people.”
“I salute all who have had courage to call out the EC and the Nana Akufo-Addo administration in this brazen act of trampling on the democratic will of the people. I want to restate our challenge to the EC, to come out and show Ghanaians their Results Summary sheet and pink sheets for the Techiman South Constituency,” he added.
The leadership of the NDC announced their decision to reject the results of the 2020 general elections after it was declared by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa some weeks ago.
