He accused the Electoral Commission Chair, Jean Mensa of twisting the parliamentary election results to favour the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He made this allegation in his address to the nation after the Supreme Court dismissed his petition to challenge the results of the presidential election.
On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, John Dramani Mahama said the NDC’s analysis of the results show that his party has won the majority of seats in Parliament.
In a press conference, the NDC flagbearer said, “We thank the electorate for giving us a working majority in parliament; 140 seats in Parliament, which is a majority and no attempt should be made to subvert that.
“I’ve looked at the results we’ve collated so far and I’m excited, I’m happy with the results. We won in 10 regions out of 16 and the Ghanaian people have expressed confidence in us,” Mr. Mahama said.
