EC Changes Election Results

The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has changed the 2020 elections results three times.

At least three official results have emerged with the EC apologising for inadvertently releasing wrong figures in relation to the presidential elections.

The presidential outcome which has generated a lot of discussion in public and social media circles with the biggest opposition party rejecting the figures being churned out.

The total number of valid votes cast was 13,434,574, representing 79 per cent of the total registered voters.

EC Chair Mrs Jean Mensa, said at a press to announce the results on December 9 saying at the end of the polls, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party obtained 6,730,413 votes, being 51.595% of the total valid votes cast. John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress obtained 6,214,889 votes being 47.366% of the total valid votes cast.

This was computed without results from the Techiman South constituency and  different from the hard copy of the results printed and released to journalists.
