Opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) has presented a compelling evidence of over-voting, voting without verification, stuffing of ballot boxes, and other electoral infractions in New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) strongholds to Journalists to back its rejection of the 2020 presidential election.
The party also cited massaging of figures, reduction of votes of its presidential candidate, John Mahama, and increasing of votes of NPP’s candidate, Akufo-Addo in some polling stations culminating in what the NDC described as “fictional and flawed” election results declared by Jean Mensa led Electoral Commission in favor of the sitting president.
Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communication Officer of the NDC at a news conference in Accra also presented loads of its pink sheets and video evidence to back its claim.
In SDA primary “1” polling station, Chra in the Bono region, he said, the above-mentioned polling station had 49 people on the voters roll but in excess of 400 people voted in the said polling station.
This, over voting, already thump printed ballot papers with EC stump in the hands of NPP activists including other electoral malfeasance was replicated at Ejisu,Asawasi in the Ashanti region.
