Former President, John Dramani Mahama has observed what he described as a hostile posture of the Electoral Commission (EC) towards the opposition National Democratic prior to the last general elections
“The posture of the Electoral Commission before, during and after the elections has just shown a certain hostility against our party but we’ve learnt our lessons,” the NDC flagbearer for the 2020 polls in an interview on Bolgatanga-based GBC URA Radio monitored by MyNewsGh.com noted.
According to him, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learnt lessons from the 2020 elections and will make sure they win the next elections on electoral grounds.
“Elections are won on the grounds, not Supreme Court. Next time we will take due notice of that. We are going to fight and make sure the right things are done.”Mr. John Mahama made the statement in an interview in the Upper East Region during his ‘Thank You Tour’ of the region on Tuesday.
According to John Dramani Mahama, the Electoral Commission has proven on countless occasions to be hostile to the NDC in recent times hence the party has also taken strategic steps to win the next elections fairly.
He noted that one of the strategic steps of the party is to ensure that they win the next elections at the polling station and not to resort to the Supreme Court.
The NDC lost its case against the Electoral Commission at the Supreme Court after alleging some irregularities in the declaration of the New Patriotic Party candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president for the second term.
However, the former president who still has ambitions of becoming a president for the second term, said the party will not slack in its bid to relinquish power from the incumbent party.
