NDC’s flagbearer, John Mahama has described the Jean Mensa-led Electoral Commission (EC) as the worst so far in the history of Ghanaian politics.
John Mahama arrived in the Bono East Capital, Techiman earlier today to visit families of victims of election-related violence in the Techiman South Constituency.
Addressing supporters, and sympathisers of the party within the Bono East Region, he first expressed his “condolences to the relatives of the deceased” following a shooting incident in the Techiman constituency during the collation of ballots.
He further lay blame at the feet of the EC.
“But I must say, things shouldn’t have happened this way. This is not our first election. But unfortunately, we find ourselves here due to the incompetence of this Electoral Commission.”
“If this was a more advanced country, the EC Chairperson would have been forced to resign in shame. Ghana has been tagged as the beacon of democracy for a long time, but the EC has soiled our reputation. This EC will go down in history as the worst ever,” Mr. Mahama added.
