NDC will not accept results of a flawed electoral process – Mahama to EC

Former President John Dramani Mahama has repeatedly warned that his party, the NDC, will not accept the results of a petty election in the December poll. As part of his five-day campaign tour at Abura in the Central Region, Mahama told the NDC to advocate that Electoral Commission (EC), from all indications, has set out to organize a flawed election.

Addressing the National Democratic Congress (NDC) backers, he said, "We are not troublemakers. We want to ensure that we all believe in this election so that you are prepared to accept if you win or lose. But when we complain, they think that we are just causing trouble.

"This can lead this nation to chaos because I have said it, on December 7 2020, when this election is flawed, we will not accept it. Who agrees with a flawed election? Nobody answered.

"And everything the electoral commission is doing now shows that we are heading to a faulty election," 

The former President said the new voter's roll, according to the EC, is supposed to eliminate manual verification. However, indications are that the December 7 general elections will have more manual proof of voters than any election.

"And when we talk, everybody is quiet, and if something untoward happens, then they will say it is this person's fault, but we have given enough warning signals that the electoral commission is creating problems", John Dramani Mahama added.

He said the EC now treats the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) as an enemy instead of seeing it as a partner for the conduct of free and fair elections.

The ex-President said Ghana is a peaceful country and the NDC, as a friendly party, will not do anything to upset the democracy of Ghana, adding, "But there is a limit to how far you can push a person, and I am saying we will not accept a flawed election".

The presidential candidate of the NDC urges all civil society organizations and other stakeholders to be interested in demanding a free and fair electoral process ahead of the December 7 poll. He also repeated his earlier call for international observers to come into the country to join domestic observers to observe the electoral process.

He additionally charged NDC activists, allies, and troopers to secure the voting booths at their different surveying stations to guarantee that the cycle isn't upset on political decision day and guard their votes to ensure each and everyone checks.
