The Electoral Commission says it plans to declare the results of the upcoming December 7 general elections 24hours after the end of polls.
According to the electoral management body, this year’s elections will be recorded as the best in Ghana’s history.
Speaking at the national dialogue on peaceful election in Accra, the Director of Electoral Services, Dr. Serebuor Quarcoo said almost all materials for this year’s elections have been dispatched to the regions more than two weeks to the polls.
“All things being equal, by the next day before we go to bed we would have declared the results. Our plan is that we want to declare results on the 8th of December, that’s why I said that this year’s election is going to be the best because we are putting in place all the planning that it needs and we are getting all the support that we need. All the logistics have been put in place, all the regions and districts have been asked to submit what they will need to make our dream of declaring the results the next day a reality.”
Ghana goes to the polls on December 7, 2020 to elect a President and 275 Parliamentarians for a four-year term.
