NDC won more Parliamentary seats, we were robbed – Mahama

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.

“It is not surprising that international observers observed [that] coalition was a problem in the 2020 General Election,” the former President said.

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.

“We will do nothing to compromise the peace of Ghana… we have only one nation Ghana and we must work together to ensure the progress,” he said.

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.

  1. The mistake the NDC made was exposing all the EC alerting her to correct them. Some of the errors, like calculation errors, should have been kept secret to be revealed at the court. We are living in a world full of corruption where money plays a vital role. Do you think having borrowed billions of dollars, left in the Bank, it will be easy to let it go just like that? Hence the role of the police, the military, the EC and the quietness of so called peace council. If goats fowls and yam tubers can cause judgement bias in the courts of Ghanah, How much more do you think one million dollars would do?
