The Founder of the Atta Mills Institute (AMI), Mr Koku Anyidoho has stated that the Electoral Commission did a fantastic job with the 2020 general election.
According to him, his comments are based on the outcome of Election 2020.
Speaking in an interview on Accra based Asempa FM, he lauded the EC chair, Jean Mensa and her abled assistants for a good job done.
"Kudos to Jean Mensa and the Electoral Commission, [Dr] Serebour Quaicoo, [Samuel] Tettey and [Dr] Bossman Asare, Sylvia Annor and the others. They have done a fantastic work," Koku Anyidoho said.
He added that the EC outperformed what most people thought it would not since its chairperson was a newbie.
Anyidoho made reference to the new biometric machines procured by the EC for the exercise, which he said the EC was accused of deliberately procuring and programming the machines to favor a particular candidate.
He said a monitoring of the elections by the Atta Mills Institute showed that many people had voted by 3pm on election day and that strict COVID-19 protocols were observed in all areas.
He made reference to how the EC divided polling stations as the success of the smooth running of the process without congestion.
On the scale of equity, Mr Anyidoho said since 1992 all elected Presidents and political parties have gotten two terms in succession and so it has been balanced.
"2024 will be the redefining moment, and that is where I think that all the political parties" will have to re-strategise.
Meanwhile, The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described the declared results of the 2020 presidential race as a “charade”.
Addressing the media on Thursday, December 10, 2020, the general secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia reiterated the party’s rejection of the results.
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).
