Mahama files petition to protest the legality of 2020 elections presidential results
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has filed a request to challenge the 2020 general election Presidential results which has just-ended as the Electoral Commission declared.
John Mahama’s lawyers showed up at Supreme Court earlier today to file the petition which objects the lawfulness of Akufo-Addo as the President-elect of the country.
It’s decided to lastly petition the apex court after almost two weeks of safe protests over the country by NDC sympathisers.
The lawyers said, the Presidential results which the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Mensa declared is imperfect and ‘doesn’t represent the will of the people.’
John Mahama has also defined the judgment of the EC as fake, saying that the results were made up to favour the party in power New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The results which Jean Mensa declared on Tuesday, December 9, inscribed the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo polling 6,730, 413 (51.59%) of the total votes cast, whiles John Mahama earnd 6, 214, 889 (47.36%) of the total votes cast.
But the former President John Mahama and the NDC claim the adjudgement was made up to favor the political party in power.
NDC supporters firmly defend the stance of the party by demanding for the overrule of the results announced as they hit on the street.
In the meantime, the party still stands that it will keep all legal actions used at the moment by the party supporters still ongoing to get their demand made “the government of President Akufo-Addo to enforce the rule of law and protect life and property in Ghana and, in particular, to take all necessary measures to bring to swift justice those responsible for the murders, injuries and destruction of property before, during and in the aftermath of the general elections.”
