“Tuesday was a sad day for Ghana’s democracy…” – Prez. John Dramani Mahama

It has been weeks since the chairperson of the Electoral Commission declared the presidential results naming H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo as the president elect.

The country has witnessed a lot of protests and demonstrations from NDC sympathizers after the presidential candidate of the NDC John Mahama rejected the results declared by the EC.

On the 22nd of December,2020, the minority caucus in parliament matched to the EC headquarters to present a petition with regards to the parliamentary results of Techiman South Constituency. The minority leader and his people were denied entry to premises of the EC by the Ghana Police.

Prez. John Mahama had this to say about the issue: “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 concluded.
