President Mahama has categorically stated that he is prepared to accept the election result whether is "positive or negative".
Addressing hundreds of supporters at his residence, President Mahama reveals that "we are still the ruling government" and that tensions in the country will affect Ghana's stability.
President Mahama's ground breaking speech brings to rest speculations that suggest he may not accept the election result.
So far, all presidential candidates except President Mahama has conceded defeat to the main opposition leader, Nana Addo.
Chairman of the EC, Charlotte Osei, has revealed in an emergency press briefing says the EC has so far covered 210 constituencies out of the total of 275.
The EC is blaming the delay in results on the refusal by polling agents to sign the pink sheets - a development which she says needs to be addressed by the various political parties.
