Meanwhile, former president John Dramani Mahama has rejected the results of the 2020 elections.

Speaking for the first time after the EC's declaration, Mahama stated without mincing words that he was not going to accept the EC's results.

According to the NDC presidential candidate, the results as declared by EC are “flawed and discredited”.

Mahama went on to state that Jean Mensa's declaration of the results was a clear violation of the law because it did not follow the rules set out to conduct the elections.

In a related development, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has taken back the results of the presidential polls that was declared on December 9, 2020, after admitting it contained some errors.

A new post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the morning of Thursday, December 10, 2020, on the verified Twitter handle of the commission reveals some corrections were made.

In a statement, the Electoral Commission clearly acknowledged that the Chairperson, Jean Mensah mistakenly used 13,433,573 as the total valid votes cast, which was not the case.

According to the commission, the total valid votes cast is 13,119,460 and this does not change the percentages stated for each candidate and the declaration made by the Chairperson.
