The Electoral Commission has dismissed rumours that its Chairperson, Jean Mensah has traveled abroad after declaring the 2020 Presidential election results.
There have been rumours circulating on social media that Mrs Mensah soon after declaring President Akufo Addo as winner of the December 7 Presidential election boarded flight and left Ghana.
But the EC in a statement stated that “Mrs Jean Mensah, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, as well as all the Commissioners are at post discharging their legally mandated duties.”
President Akufo Addo was re-elected on December 7, 2020 after polling 6,730,413 votes representing 51.59% of the total vote cast as against his main contender John Mahama who garnered 6,214,889 votes representing 43.36%.
More than 13 million ballots were cast out of a total electorate of 17 million and across 38,000 polling stations throughout the country. Voters also chose 275 lawmakers for the national parliament.
The re-election gives President-elect Akufo Addo an opportunity to rule the country for another four-year term and continue with the developmental agenda of the country.
