Since the declaration of the 2020 Election Results by the Electoral Commission (EC), the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) has taken to the streets to protest against the discrimination on the part of the Jean Mensah led Electoral Commission since the declaration of the 2020 Election Results by the Electoral Commission (EC), which they believed was rigged and flawed in favor of the ruling party.
The Ghanaians went to the polls to elect a new President and a new Member of Parliament who, for the next four years, would manage the country’s affairs.
The Electoral Commission (EC) through its chairperson, Miss Jean Mensah, after a lot of tussle between the two largest parties in the country, the New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC), came out to name incumbent President Nana Addo the President Elect from the 2020 elections.
With a voting rate of 51,5 percent lower than the percentage they used to win the 2016 elections, the NPP government retained power.
Just 48 hours after the election, the NPP was declared presidential candidate by the Electoral Commission (EC) headed by its chairman, Jean Mensah, and presidential candidate Nana Addo as president-elect.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) categorically declined to acknowledge the findings on the grounds that the findings were faulty.
The Electoral Commission later admitted that in the overall number of valid votes cast, they made a mistake, thereby bringing out a new figure as the total for valid votes.
In several of their coordinated press conferences, the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) led by its general secretary, Johnson Aseidu Nketiah, popularly known as General Mosquito and the National Director of Communications for the party, Sammy Gyamfi, called on the NDC fraternity, in particular the supporters, to protest against the EC.
