Former President Rawlings has described this year’s general elections as the best ever to be held in Ghana’s electoral history and in Africa.
He also commended Ghanaians who withstood the challenges that confronted the process forcing the EC to postpone the elections to a second day.
Mr. Rawlings made these comments when the AU President Yayi Bonni paid a courtesy call on him following the declaration of election results on Sunday by the Chairman of the Electoral Commission.
“I am just saying Mr. President [Yayi Boni] that this is the most serene electoral process I have ever witnessed in this country” the founder of the ruling NDC said.
He added that “it compares to none on this continent and possibly around the world. What took place here is as good as anything you would find in any part of the world and I am saying that the beauty of it is that it happened not because of any coercive thing”.
President Yayi Boni is expected to visit Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the NPP to hold talks with him on allegations of vote fraud made by his party.
