The 2020 Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has maintained that they won more seats in Parliament than the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December 7 General Election.
Speaking at his Cantonment residence Thursday after the Supreme Court dismissed his Election Petition for lack of merit, John Dramani Mahama said the NDC was robbed through some manipulations of its majority in Parliament.
Mr Mahama was in court to challenge the declaration of the incumbent President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
The ex-President had claimed that no candidate had the constitutionally required 50 percent plus one votes to be declared a winner.
But after hearing the submission made by Mr Mahama, the Supreme Court in a unanimous decision has dismissed the Election Petition for lack of merit.
Even though he disagreed with the ruling, the former President said he will let it slide in the name of peace.
Mr Mahama has appealed to civil society organisations to urge serious reforms in the Electoral Commission, which he has blamed for his defeat.
“This Commission has no reason to remain in office,” he advocated, saying: “the EC must be a neutral arbiter [and],” he said.
