President Akufo-Addo has taken a significant lead in 261 constituency results collated by the EIB Network.
Out of the 261 constituencies collated, the president has garnered a total of 6, 297, 943 representing 51.69% while the NDC’s flagbearer John Dramani Mahama has polled 5, 750, 955 representing 47.20%.
The remaining 10 parties made up, NDP, CPP, PPP, GUM, LPG, GFP, and an Independent Candidate polled 135, 748 representing 1.11%.
The Electoral Commission is expected to announce the winner of the presidential elections on Wednesday.
The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Jean Mensa says rains and other challenges on election day affected the timeline set for results declaration.
The commission failed on its promise to announce results 24 hours after the polls.
“We express our regret for our inability to declare the results at 5 pm on Tuesday as planned. The unexpected rains and some of the challenges we experienced at the collation center made it difficult to declare the result as expected. We are hoping that, in the early hours of today, we will receive two additional results and will thereafter be able to make the declaration today” she told the Media at a press briefing Tuesday night.
She noted however that results in the Presidential and Parliamentary polls will be declared today Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
