Former President and Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama , has described the outcome of the December 7 election as a “stolen verdict”.
In an address to the nation at the NDC headquarters on Thursday evening December 10,2020, he stated the election results announced by the Electoral Commission (EC) is “fictionalised and flawed.”
He said …“I stand before you tonight unwilling to accept the fictionalised result of a flawed election,” ….
“What we witnessed across the country from Monday 7th December 2020 exposed a deliberate plan to manipulate and predetermine the results of the election in favour of the incumbent candidate Nana Akufo-Addo,” he added.
He further reiterated the NDC’s assertion that they will not accept anything short of a declaration of the legitimate results which points to an NDC Parliamentary majority.
President elect, President Akufo-Addo won 6,730,587 (51.302%) of the total votes. Mr. Mahama came second with 6,213,182 votes representing 47.29%.
However, the former President did indicate that, there was a grand scheme by the EC to rig the election in favour of President Akufo-Addo and maintained that, the NDC had won the Majority in Parliament though the EC’s figures show the New Patriotic Party leading with 137 MP elects to the NDC’s 136, with one constituency outstanding.
