The Ghana Police Service (GPS) says all allegations of crime and impropriety in the ongoing general elections are being investigated.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, the service described the exercise as peaceful with voting resuming at places where the process was halted due to rainstorms.
The service further noted that security personnel had been sent to the Polling Stations where it observed the absence of security presence.
“Also, security personnel will escort all ballot boxes to their collation centres before logging out of their polling station duties,” a portion of the post stated.
Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh visited some Polling Stations in Accra.
In an earlier article, YEN.com.gh reported the National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying it would win the ongoing general elections.
Addressing a news conference in Accra moments earlier, the director of elections of the NDC, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah announced: “The victory of NDC is coming; the signs are clear.”
He described the process as largely smooth across the country.
In a separate development, the NDC in the Greater Accra region alleged officials of the elections management body in the Klottey Korle Constituency allowed one security personnel to vote multiple times.
According to the party’s regional chairman, Ade Coker, the said personnel, voted in the special voting exercise held on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
At least 109,557 persons took part in that exercise held at 311 centres across the country.
Meanwhile, one person was arrested in the Western region in relation to the ongoing general elections across the country.
The arrest, which happened at Whindo in the Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipality followed attempts by some residents to stop electoral officers from accessing polling centres in the community, state-owned Daily Graphic reported.
