The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says nothing can change its majority status in the coming parliament.
According to the party, it won 140 parliamentary seats in the just-ended general elections.
Addressing journalists in Accra on Thursday, December 10, 2020, the general secretary of the party, John Asiedu Nketia, said the NDC from available evidence “has a clear majority in parliament and nothing can change that.”
Meanwhile, he described the declared results of the 2020 presidential race as a “charade”, reiterating the party’s rejection of the results.
“I have come to confirm that we still stand by our original position,” he stated.
Asiedu Nketia further alleged that personnel of the National Security had been deployed across the country to manufacture and change pink sheets results in favour of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
But, the Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) rejected the claims by the NDC that the results were fabricated.
