Election Petition: NDC presents evidence to UK, US envoys

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has presented evidence challenging the outcome of the just-ended elections results to the United kingdom (UK) High Commissioner and the United States (US) Ambassador to Ghana on Wednesday December 30.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Minority Spokesperson on Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee in a Facebook post showed the Diplomatic Community through some of the pink sheets on which the NDC believe their results were tampered with to favour the incumbent President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The caucus under the distinguished leadership of Haruna Iddrisu and Second Deputy Speaker Alban S.K. Bagbin presented evidence and the basis for the NDC’s rejection of the multiple results declared by the EC for the presidential contest and the dubious parliamentary declarations particularly in Techiman South and Sefwi Wiawso.”

“We also highlighted the grave human right violations which have led to the killing of seven Ghanaians and left many with life-changing injuries,” he added.

The pink sheets were inspected by the diplomats and their officials in the presence of the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, and the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban S. K. Bagbin.

The meeting with the diplomatic community comes after the party’s presidential candidate, former President John Dramani Mahama on Wednesday, December 30, petitioned the Supreme Court to order a second round of the December 7, election.

According to him, the votes obtained by New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate, President Akufo-Addo, and himself in the December 7, election as declared by the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Mensah, were not enough to be declared the winner.

Additionally, the North Tongu MP reiterated NDC’s position to persist with all legal means to ensure a reversal of the results of the general elections declared by the Commission.

“We shall continue with our series of legitimate engagements in the spirit of democratic accountability, resisting the subversion of the people’s will and preserving the pillars of the Fourth Republic birthed by our political tradition.

“Important to emphasise that the engagements shall proceed without prejudice to the petition filed at the country’s apex court,” he stressed.
