The Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced that the Party has won 140 seats so far, thereby putting Candidate Mahama in polls position.
The Director of Elections of the Party Mr. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah who made the announcement in Accra on Tuesday rubbished the claims by the NPP that they are leading in both Parliamentary and Presidential.
He added that instead, the NDC is currently leading in both Parliamentary and presidential results.
“Now if you understand electoral politics very well you would realize that wherever the Parliamentary Candidates win the Presidential candidate also wins. So it would be absurd for somebody to say that in the face of this they’ve won the election”, Mr. Afriyie Ankrah stressed.
He also disclosed that for the first time “from the collation we have, John Mahama is doing over 30% in Ashanti region and Greater Accra we are doing 56%.
The NDC Director of Elections gave the break down of the seats as follows and urged all supporters to mass up at the collation centres to prevent the NPP from changing the results.
Currently we have 140 seats:
Upper west 8
Upper east 6
9 out 18 northern region Constituencies
Bono East 9
Western region 9
Western North 7
Greater Accra 20
Central Region 13
