According to Mahama, the EC has to ensure all the issues from the 2016 elections are addressed.
He said it was imperative that those concerns were addressed to ensure that whoever wins in 2020, it would be treated as the free expression of the will of the people of Ghana.
The NDC presidential candidate said this when officials of the Electoral Commission (EC) led by its Chairperson, Jean Mensa, paid a courtesy call on him in Accra, Wednesday, July 10.
The meeting which was held under strict and tight security, prevented journalists from entering the meeting hall with their phones.
After the initial welcome remarks, the former president asked journalists to leave the meeting room for a heart-to-heart closed doors meeting with the EC officials.
Mahama further urged the EC to ensure confidence in the stakeholders regarding the provision of a level-playing field for all stakeholders.
On her part, the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa told the former president that the purpose of their visit was to among other things, seek his support and partnership for the activities of the Commission.
She said it was also to bring the Commission to the doorstep of the opposition National Democratic Congress and to create a platform for dialogue.
