Electoral Commission left with two regional results to declare Ghana’s presidential winner


The commission in charge of the voting and declaration of winners has revealed that they are close to announce who won the polls in the coming hours

Ghana’s Electoral Commission has released the results of the presidential elections from several regions after coalition and verification.

Mrs Jean Mensa, the EC boss, revealed at a press conference held on Wednesday morning that the Commission has received presidential results from fourteen of the sixteen regions and are left with only two regions to declare who actually emerged as the eventual winner of the 2020 polls.

Jean Mensa also added that Commission is yet to receive election results from the Northern and the Bono East Regions.

“As we speak, the Commission has received 14 out of the 16 regional results. We have the national collation centre where we have had representatives of the various political parties since yesterday,” Jean Mensah said.

“As the results come in, the party representatives review them against what they themselves have received from the regions and once they are satisfied that the results that have come to us from the regions are a true reflection of what they have received, they then append their signatures to it before the results are brought to my attention.

” As returning officer of the 2020 presidential election, I then certify these results. Out of the 14 results received, we have certified seven up to date”, she added.
