Speaking to the Christian Ecumenical Council on Monday, May 20, 2024, Mahama alleged that politically exposed individuals with ties to the NPP have been appointed as commissioners, compromising their neutrality and fairness.

Mahama questioned how individuals who have served as communicators and IT backstops for the NPP can be expected to be impartial in their roles as Electoral Commission commissioners. He also pointed out that former patrons of TESCON (NPP’s youth wing) on university campuses now hold positions as Electoral Commission commissioners.

This is not the first time Mahama has raised concerns about the Electoral Commission’s neutrality. In June 2023, he expressed similar concerns, accusing the commission of bias in favor of the incumbent government. Mahama has urged the church to add its voice to his concerns, emphasizing the need for vigilance to ensure the integrity of the electoral process.

“We want to wake up the conscience of the nation that the right thing must be done so that the outcome can actually be the will of the people,” Mahama said.

He encouraged the church community to remain vigilant and ensure that the electoral process is fair and transparent.
