With that been said, let’s get right into this article.

The outcome of the 2020 general elections didn’t go as planned for the flag bearer of the largest opposition party, John Mahama as he filed a petition to contest the election results after rejecting the electoral commission’s verdict.

After long days of Supreme Court hearing and consideration of the petitioner’s case, the apex court Judges have unexpectedly ruled against the petitioner, John Mahama as they claimed the the petitioner’s case proved no evidence of elections rigging in favor of the incumbent President, Akufo-Addo and the NPP.

With respect to this, the former President and flag bearer of the NDC, John Mahama has come out to share his opinion on the supreme courts final Judgement concerning the election petition which was filed before the apex court to contest the results declared by Jean Mensah on December 9, 2020.

According to Mahama, he wasn’t ready to accept the supreme court’s ruling as he clearly knew from the 2020 presidential election results that, no candidate had 50+1 votes as depicted otherwise by the Chairperson of the electoral commission.

During John Mahama’s speech concerning the 2020 election petition final Judgement by the Supreme Court Judges, He emphatically stated that, he disagreed with the process of the trial and ruling of the Supreme Court against the NDC.

“I disagree with the process of the trial and the ruling of the court”, Mahama stated.

John Mahama also claimed that, crude ethnicity is creeping into the Ghanaian political landscape as he reacted to SC ruling.

Whilst touching on the electoral commission’s impact in the just ended 2020 presidential elections, John Mahama added that, considering the past heads of the EC the current Chairperson does not meet the criteria to hold such a position due to not being neutral and objective.

“Compared to the two previous heads of the EC, what we have now does not meet the standard of neutrality or objectivity. The posture and approach this EC does not inspire any confidence you preside over any elections ”, Mahama emphatically stated.

Mahama however applauded his lead counsel, Tsatsu Tsikata for his immense dedication and intellectual skills during the 2020 election petition hearing at the Supreme Court.

Do you agree with John Mahama considering his claims about the Chairperson of the electoral commission not being neutral and objective in her decision making whilst disagreeing with SC Judgement?
