The chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Jean Mensa, has reiterated that the results of the elections will be declared in 24 hours after Voting.

Mrs Mensa said certain processes had been put in place so that the results would be declared within the estimated time frame.

Speaking at the "Let the Citizen Know", an EC platform for Electoral issues, Mrs Mensa said, the current constitutional instrument mandates the regional directors to collate results of constituencies in their regions and forward it to the EC Headquarters.

She added that, the regional and the district officer had been trained, equipped, and tasked to submit their report by specific times after voting ends.

She said the EC had put together special logistics support to help the officers transport the results to district and regional collation centres, saying "in the Afram Plains, boats will be on standby while in the other hard-to-reach areas special vehicles and security will be made available".

She mentioned that, the final voters register had a total of 17,027,641 registrants who were eligible to vote come December 7.

In the final voters register the gender breakdown are that females constitute 8,810,283 representing 51.74 percent while males are 8,217,358, representing 48.26 percent out of the total number of eligible voters.
