EC to announce winner of presidential election at 5pm today

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced it will declare the 2020 presidential election results at 5 pm today.

The declaration will be done at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).

The Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensah, serves as the returning officer for the presidential polls.

The announcement will come 24 hours after the close of polls on December 7 as promised by the commission.

The National Democratic Congress, in particular, was sceptical of the EC’s 24-hour target.

The Commission said it had introduced more efficient measures which will facilitate the declaration of election results within 24 hours.

It, however, did not outline the new measures it considered efficient.

In the 2016 election, results were declared two days after the close of polls.
