The National Democratic Congress(NDC) under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama have stood up against the declaration of the presidential result that took place on the 9th of December 2020.
Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu stated that the democracy of the nation was under attack following the declaration of results that went in favor of Nana Addo, leader of the New Patriotic party(NPP). He further stated that the results declared by the Electoral Commission(EC) did not correspond with facts in reality.
“This evening Ghana’s democracy has come under severe attack and needs some rescue urgently. If not rescued these attacks would fester and grow into future elections and that will disfigure our track record as a true democratic nation,” he said.
Haruna Iddrisu further stated that the National Democratic Congress(NDC) rejects the presidential results declared by Jean Mensa, chairperson of the Electoral Commission(EC).
“We reject the presidential elections as announced by the chair of the Electoral Commission. And we also want to serve notice that the blatant effort even to deny us of a parliamentary majority will be fiercely resisted”, Haruna Iddrisu stated.
