Former President of Ghana, John Mahama has predicted the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will win the impending elections if the referees(Electoral Commission) of the election ensure that it is free, fair and transparent
Mr Mahama was speaking at the flag-raising ceremony to mark the 28th Anniversary of the NDC, in Accra on Wednesday, 10th June 2020.
The leader of the NDC said, “If the election – and I know it will – is free and fair, there can be no outcome other than the NDC emerging victorious in this election”.
The National Democratic Congress has said that the Electoral Commission is doing the bidding of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to the NDC, the Electoral Commission’s insistence on the use of the Ghana Card and Passport which most Ghanaians do not have access to for identification during the compilation of a new voters register is an indication of a move by the Electoral Commission to rig the election for the NPP.
To avoid rigging of the elections, the former President who is seeking another term said: “All members of our grassroots, branches, we face an epic election this year and I want to salute our activists at the branch and constituency levels”.
He added: “Our victory in this election is going to rest on your shoulders”.
“We are fighting at the national level even with the constraint we face as an opposition party to get the resources necessary for you to prosecute your work”.
“I wish to state emphatically that we’ll support you to police the poll right from the point of voting until the final results are declared. At every single level of the election, we’ll police the poll…we’ll be vigilant, nothing will escape our scrutiny, no ballot box will go out of our sight until all the votes have been counted, collated, accounted for and the results declared…”
