Former President John Dramani Mahama has commended the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu and the Minority MPs Caucus for stepping out boldly in defence of the democratic rights of Ghanaians.
Mr. John Dramani Mahama, the Leader of the National Democratic Congress also salute all who have had courage to call out the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administration in this brazen act of trampling on the democratic will of the people.
Recounting an incident that took place between the Minority Members in Parliament and the Ghana Police on their ways to present a petition to the Electoral Commission, John Dramani Mahama said, “Tuesday was a sad day for Ghana’s democracy when the Minority Members of Ghana’s Parliament were prevented from presenting a petition to the Electoral Commission in respect of the recent Parliamentary election in Techiman South.”
“But let me congratulate the Minority Leader and the Caucus for stepping out boldly in defence of the democratic rights of Ghanaians.”
Mr. Mahama in a statement noted that, the conduct of the Electoral Commission (EC), with the tacit support of the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo, using security personnel acting capriciously even towards Members of Parliament is not something anyone could have envisaged in our beloved country in the course of our 4th Republic.
“Clearly the EC and its Chairperson are in connivance with Nana Akufo-Addo to fraudulently keep the Techiman South seat on the NPP side. This is a clear subversion of the will of the people.”
He therefore restate the NDC’s challenge to the EC, to come out and show Ghanaians their Results Summary sheet and pink sheets for the Techiman South Constituency.
