The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says its painstaking, methodical and deliberate investigations into the December polls, have uncovered massive and pervasive irregularities in the election results.

According to the opposition party, the irregularities tended to invariably favour the NDC presidential candidate, President John Mahama.

At a presentation in Accra today after filing a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the election results, Vice-Presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia stated emphatically that the irregularities which were largely uncovered at the polling station level, were substantial enough to affect the outcome of the presidential election.

According to him, over 1.34m illegal votes were wrongly counted as part of the result of the 2012 presidential election and when the proper adjustment is done, Nana Akufo-Addo should have been declared president.

The irregularities led to 1,340,018 votes being wrongly counted as part of the result of the 2012 presidential election. These votes were largely to the benefit of the NDC presidential candidate.

These 1.34 million votes, identified as wrongly counted, are supported by Pink Sheets from each of the affected polling stations. Adjusting the EC announced results to take account of these illegally counted votes will mean that Nana Akufo-Addo should have been declared president. This is the heart of our case to the Supreme Court. Analysis and gathering of the evidence continue and the 1.34 million figure is likely to increase, Dr Bawumia said.
