Between December 7, 2020, and December 9, 2020, five people were confirmed dead including a police officer on election duty.
Thedeaths were recorded in the Odododiodio Constituency, Techiman South Constituency and the Savelugu Constituency .
On December 16, 2020, another person who was shot passed away at the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital.
He was allegedly shot by a military man at the Ablekuma Central collation centre on December 7.
The NDC and other stakeholders have condemned these acts whilst the Electoral Commission and the President-elect are yet to make a statement on these incidents.
Meanwhile, president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will be sworn-in to office for a second term on the same day, January 7, 2021.
Some dignitaries are expected to be present during the event which will take place tomorrow.
The event will be held in parliament instead of the Black Star Square, where it is always held to reduce crowding.
In view of that, the Liberian President, George Oppong Weah has arrived in the country ahead of the event to swear-in president Akufo-Addo.
In other news, Haruna Iddrisu has expressed optimism he will be the Majority Leader in the eighth parliament.

According to the Tamale South lawmaker, NDC won both the Techiman South and the Sefwi seats contrary to the results declared by the Electoral Commission (EC).
“I am now an aspiring Majority Leader with Techiman South and the Sefwi to be secured...we will form a majority,” Iddrisu told Accra-based Citi FM.
