At least results from 14 regions have so far been collated and transmitted to the Electoral Commission in Accra, the EC Boss, Jean Mensa has announced.
Out of that, seven of them have been certified, she said at a press briefing on Wednesday dawn [December 9, 2020] at 12:30 am.
“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. 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 noted
The seven regions where the results have been certified and released are Volta, North East, Central, Ahafo, Upper West, Oti and Bono.
She claimed the remaining seven results are going through the certification process and would be released shortly.
She mentioned the two remaining regions where results are still outstanding as Bono East and Northern.
Those outstanding are Ashanti, Eastern, Western, Western North, Upper East, Greater Accra and Savannah.
A total of the results from the seven regions are as follows:
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo (NPP) – 1,500,310
John Dramani Mahama (NDC) – 1,997,450
