Election 2020: Mahama to be investigated over what he termed “Worst election ever” –Electoral commission.

The Electoral Commission (EC) has responded to the myriad of allegations made against it by former President John Dramani Mahama.

Mr. Mahama who led the National  Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 poll had among other things accused the Commission of ballot stuffing, fraud, militarization of the process, among others.

Deputy Chairman of the Electoral Commission in charge of Corporate Affairs, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, at the commission’s ‘Let the Citizen Know’ encounter on Monday, October 25, 2021, dissociated the EC from the violence that erupted in the electoral process.

The Commission also asked the Ghana Police Service to investigate claims of criminality Mr. Mahama levelled against the EC.

“The transparency of our processes makes ballot-stuffing impossible. It cannot be done. We call on the former President in the interest of our democracy to provide evidence of the stuffing of the ballot boxes by the EC officials. The police should investigate this as a matter of urgency because its potential can erode our democracy.”

“The former President has alleged that the military influenced the declaration and announcement of the election results. This is also false. It never happened. Nowhere did the military influence the declaration and announcement of the results. It is not true, because the 2020 elections were widely participatory”, he added.
