The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Mahama has said that the party is doing all it can to secure the majority seats in Parliament.
He said five constituencies are under siege by New Patriotic Party who are seeking to overturn the NDC’s victories there.
Addressing the nation for the first time after the declaration of the presidential results, Mr Mahama said “We are beefing up capacities in the constituencies where the ruling NPP is seeking to overturn the parliamentary victory already chalked. We are also deploying an additional crack team of lawyers and senior party officials to supports these constituencies that are under siege.”
He said there is deliberate attempt by the NPP to steal five of those seats which include Sefwi Wiawso, Sene West and Techiman South.
“What has happened since the election has been a deliberate attempt targeting five constituencies of the 140 to steal and thus subvert the people’s verdict. A closer look and detailed examination of the constituency specific facts casts very dark clouds on our democracy,” John Mahama said.
The former President also accused the Electoral Commission of been a part of the NPP’s plan, questioning the credibility of the Commission.
“The litany of irregularities and blatant attempts at rigging for a candidate is obvious and most embarrassing. Ghana has come too far in our democracy, in our transparency and in our well-earned international reputation for free and fair and non-violent election to find ourselves here, where we are, in respect of this election. We are unable to accept the outcome of the election as declared by the EC chairperson, Mrs. Jean Mensa. These results are flawed and discredited,” he said.
