Election 2020: NDC Rejects Presidential Results

< 1 min read

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rejected the results of the 2020 presidential polls, describing the elections as flawed.

Haruna Iddrisu, a leading member of the NDC and Member of Parliament for Tamale South constituency, in a press conference held shortly after the declaration of the presidential results by the Electoral Commission, said the party has overwhelming evidence that the presidential election was won by John Dramani Mahama.

“We have come to only one irresistible conclusion, that it is a fraud, discredited election and therefore we reject the presidential result without any reservation,” Iddrisu said.

He added the party obtained Parliamentary majority and will therefore resist a contrary result.

“We want to say that it’s a flawed election and therefore we reject it without any reservation, we reject the presidential elections as announced by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission [Jean Mensa]. And we also want to serve notice that the blatant effort to deny us a parliamentary majority will be fiercely resisted. We know that the good people of Ghana gave us a mandate and that mandate includes a parliamentary majority… Overwhelming evidence available to us makes it difficult for us to accept these results,” he said.
