Speaking to traditional rulers of the Asanteman Traditional Council on Wednesday, Madam Osei said the her office would do everything necessary to avoid a repeat of the eight-month-long electoral dispute which occurred after the 2012 elections.

She also stressed that she did not have the power to influence the election results in any way, adding that such a move would require her to be a superman.

"There is no way all of us at the Electoral Commission can change the results. It is nearly impossible for you to change the election results.

"You have to be at 29,000 polling stations, you have to change the results on all the sheets of the party agents who are there and run to the coalition centers to change the results before coming to declare the results. Nana, I would need Superman powers to be able to do that," she said.

Madam Osei said the commission had already implemented 27 electoral reforms, including the increasing of polling stations from 22,000 to 29,000, to help ensure that the elections run smoothly.
