- CODEO has entreated Ghanaians and political parties to wait for the EC’s announcement of results
- The EC is likely to declare the winner of the presidential results in a few hours’ time
- Both NPP and NDC declare themselves winners in the elections
The Coalition of Domestic Elections Observers (CODEO) has asked Ghanaians to remain calm and allow the Electoral Commission to do its work.
“We urge all political parties and citizens to be law-abiding and remain calm as we wait on the EC to complete its work and declare the official results,” the coalition entreated in a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh.
It condemned the rush by the two major parties—the NPP and the NDC to declare results before the EC’s official announcement.
President Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP will win the 2020 presidential election based on results from 270 out of the 275 constituencies in the country, Accra-based Peace FM has projected.
According to the Peace FM data, Akufo-Addo has garnered 6,579,032 votes, representing 51.5% of the total valid votes cast. John Mahama of the NDC has won 6,022,617 votes, representing 47.1%.
The vote difference between the two candidates stands at 561,654 votes.
With only 239,564 registered voters remaining in the five outstanding constituencies, the Peace FM projection stated that it was mathematically impossible for Mahama to catch up with Akufo-Addo and force a run-off.
Former President John Dramani Mahama says he’s excited with the results of the Monday, December 7, 2020, general elections.
Addressing the media moments ago in his residence, the presidential candidate of the NDC, thanked Ghanaians for the confidence they reposed in the party.
Ghanaian voters were at the polls on Monday, December 7, 2020, to cast their ballots to elect a president and 275 legislators to represent them in parliament.
Over 17 million voters were expected to take part in elections, having endured a challenging year due to the raging coronavirus.
