Tension as Ghana electoral body prepare to announce official result

As Ghana Electoral Commission prepare to declare results of last Monday’s Presidential and parliamentary elections, news reaching us indicates that there are dissatisfaction on the part of leading opposition party over certain actions of government officials particularly the military, who they accused of interference.

NDC presidential candidate, John Mahama, expressed concern over alleged use of the military to intimidate and attack his supporters in some parts of the country.

The government has however, denied the allegations.

An attempt by the National Peace Council to meet with him ahead of the declaration of Election 2020 results by the Electoral Commission has also been rebuffed.
A reporter stationed at NDC presidential campaign office revealed that Mahama’s running mate, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, the former National Security boss, Larry Gbevlo Lartey, and other NDC officials were the ones at the meeting.

Although the two main parties are claiming victory in the election, provisional results put the incumbent, President Nana Akufo Addo, ahead in the presidential race.

Ghana’s electoral commission reneged on an initial promise to release official results 24 hours after voting ended, saying it needed more time to ensure accuracy.
