According to him, the party is informed of some electoral malpractices engaged in by the EC.

These, he said, undermine the country's democracy, something the NDC can never endorse.

He narrated, for instance, that before declaring the results, the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensah, sent the NDC supporters in the strong room on an errand.

While on their way, Mensah went ahead to hold a press conference in which she made the declaration.

Haruna wondered why the EC would want the NDC officials out before declaring the results.

He warned that the NDC will not accept a subverted will, adding that Mahama himself will address the nation in due course with facts and figures proving why Akufo-Addo cannot win the 2020 Elections.

Meanwhile, Mahama has lost the 2020 Elections to his fiercest political rival, Akufo-Addo of the NPP.

He polled a total of 6,214,889 votes, representing 47.36%, while Akufo-Addo won with 6,730,413 votes, representing 51.59% of the total vote cast.
