The Electoral Commission of Ghanaian ahead of the 2020 December polls has addressed members of the Ghanaian media.
In the words of the EC chairperson, Jean Adukwei Mensah this election is going to be marked as a historic election.
Speaking on the declaration of results, she emphasied that, the EC has issued a new directive that all constituencies will turn in their results to the regional collation centres, which will in turn be communicated to the main EC headquarters, instead of receiving result from collation centres in the 275 constituencies.
The EC also stated that it would update its website with results from the various regional collation centres.
The EC chairperson has cautioned all political parties to desist from declaring results ahead of the Electoral Commission.
She also gave a breakdown of the preparation of the Electoral commission ahead of tomorrow's exercise.
According to the EC chair, new sets of biometric machines have been procured to make the voting process smooth.
She also indicated that projectors would be available at the collating centers in order to prevent crowding around the laptop computer which would have the results.
She also stated that those with misplaced ID cards can still cast their votes because, the commission has their information on the biometric machine.
Mrs. Mensah therefore, encouraged all and sundry to exercise their franchise and not use the loss of their ID cards as an excuse.
