Election 2020

We’ll use every legal means to secure majority in Parliament – Ofosu Ampofo

The Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has said his party will use every legal means to ensure its majority in Parliament.

He said the NDC’s analysis of the parliamentary election shows that it will form the next majority of the House.

Speaking at the NDC’s 39th-anniversary celebration of the 31st December Revolution, Mr. Ampofo said the party will use every legitimate means to fight for the majority of seats in Parliament

“We want to say authoritatively that the NDC believes that we have a majority in Parliament. We will use every legitimate and legal means to define that majority.

“We will not allow anybody to subvert the will of the people. We will elect the next Speaker of Parliament because the voice of the people represents the voice of God.”

Mr. Ampofo’s assertion that the NDC has won a majority of seats in Parliament contradicts official figures from the Electoral Commission.

Ghana has been left with an unprecedented hung Parliament after the 2020 polls.

In contrast to 2016 where the NPP secured a record majority with 169 seats in Parliament, the governing party’s representation dropped to 137 seats in Parliament.

The NDC matched the NPP by also winning 137 seats in Parliament, the highest ever proportion of seats held by an opposition party in Ghana’s fourth republic.

The two parties were joined by an independent candidate, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, who won the Fomena seat.
