The flagbearer of the largest opposition party in Ghana, NDC’s John Dramani Mahama, has drawn the Electoral Commission’s attention to the party’s decision not to accept the outcome of a flawed election.
According to John Mahama, the NDC has exhibited restraint at all times in this electoral process since news of creating a new voters’ register went public.
Speaking on the challenges encountered so far with regards to the new voters’ register, which is on exhibition currently across the country, John Mahama noted that the NDC is determined to ensure that the EC carries out a credible and transparent election come December 7.
“We in the NDC have exhibited restraint at all times in this electoral process, even now we are committed to doing so. But we will not accept the result of a flawed election.”
“We will certainly not look on, neither will we shirk our civic responsibility and allow the EC, whether it intends to or sheer incompetence to usurp the people’s mandate in the December 7 polls.”
“We want to see fairness, transparency, and integrity in the process leading up to the elections,” he added.
His assertions come off as a response to the numerous allegations that the EC is deliberately removing names of NDC supporters and sympathizers from the newly compiled voters’ register following some margin of errors detected in the electoral document.
In light of this development, the former president and his running mate have suspended their campaigns on the back of the alleged anomalies, which the EC has described as negligible.
