Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) cheated the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 general elections.

But for this, he said the NDC would have been the Majority in parliament.

The Presidential Candidate of the NDC in last year’s elections noted that there is no Majority, there is no Minority.

He further said this is a good outcome for the people of Ghana, because it takes the impunity that normally the ruling party has when it has an overwhelming Majority in Parliament.

“We increased our seats from 106 to 137 seats and we brought the NPP from 169 to 137. But for the arm-twisting that they twisted against us in some constituencies, we would have had the clean Majority in Parliament,” he said.

Addressing chiefs and people of the Upper West region as part of his ‘Thank You Tour’ on Monday, Mr Mahama this current parliament will serve as a check on the Akufo-Addo government.

“As we speak, there is no Majority, there is no Minority. This is a good outcome for the people of Ghana, because it takes the impunity that normally the ruling party has when it has an overwhelming Majority in Parliament.

“In the first term, when the NPP had 169 seats in Parliament, they just railroaded everything through Parliament without consideration. But now, it is not possible for them to do that because they have the same number of seats the NDC has,” he stated.
