Drama in parliament
Nana Akufo-Addo and his vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, were sworn in to their second term at the Dome of Parliament on Constitution Day of January 7.
The event followed dramatic turns of the 7th Parliament when legislators scrambled and fought over seats, a ballot box and the snatching of a ballot paper during the election of the Speaker of Parliament.
Mahama meets NDC MPs
Meanwhile, Former President Mahama has relished the election of Alban Bagbin as Speaker of the 8TH Parliament of Ghana.
Addressing all 137 NDC legislators at a thanksgiving party, John Dramani Mahama, adviced all members of parliament to hold true to the tenets of democracy and ensure that they put the current Akufo-Addo administration in check.
“This is what the unity of purpose can do. There is no force that can defeat a people who are together and united and acting with a single purpose – and that is what we saw on the floor of Parliament. It was not a fight for yourselves. It was a fight to protect the democracy of Ghana,” he stated.
Ghana’s 2020 elections has been documented by many political scientists as the most controversial and bloody.
Election results declared by the Returning Officer to the President – Jean Mensa – confirms that John Mahama was unable to garner 50 plus one votes. The results show that John Mahama polled 6,214,889 while Nana Addo polled 6,730,413 votes.
The opposition NDC has fiercely rejected the results of the election. John Mahama has described it as flawed and rigged. Party supporters have also picketed at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission on various occasions against the results.
Political scientists at the Department of Political Science of the University of Ghana argue that forming a parallel government is unconstitutional. Such acts can even trigger treasonable offences.
The Managing news editor of the crusading guide newspaper says that the results of presidential and parliamentary elections have been gazette. He believes it will only take a judgment from the Supreme Court to reverse the results of the elections.
