Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has warned he will not accept the results of the 2020 general elections if the polls are marred by chaos and violence like what occurred at Ayawaso West Wuogon.
According to Mahama, the EC should ensure the election is free and transparent and that will ensure all parties accept the results.
Mahama who has already said he won't accept a flawed election speaking in an interview with Kwesi Pratt said should the violence and chaos that marred the Ayawaso by-election occur in the December polls he will not accept the results.
The Ayawaso West by-election took place on 31 January 2019 after the death of the incumbent MP Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko on 21 November 2018. Lydia Alhassan of the New Patriotic Party was elected with 69% of the vote.
Violence erupted in the area of the La-Bawaleshie polling station two hours after the election had started, though there was no death recorded there were casualties. Prampram MP Sam George was assaulted and 18 people were wounded by gunshot.
The perpetrators were masked men and alleged to be National Security Operatives.
The government moved to set up a Commission of Enquiry to investigate the violence.
The four-member commission had Mr Justice Emile Short as Chairman, with Professor Henrietta Mensah-Bonsu and Mr Patrick K. Acheampong as members.
The committee finished and presented their findings to the government.
