EC receives presidential results from 14 regions; officially certifies seven

The Electoral Commission (EC) says it has received results from 14 out of the 16 regions, from this year’s general elections.

Out of the number received, the electoral management body says it has officially certified the results from seven regions.

Chairperson of the Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensa, at a media briefing at midnight on Wednesday, December 9, 2020, says her outfit is looking forward to receiving the results from the two other regions before the final declaration of the presidential results.

“As we speak, the Commission has received 14 out of the 16 regional results. We have the national collation centre where we have had representatives of the various political parties since yesterday. As the results come in, the party representatives review them against what they themselves have received from the regions and once they are satisfied that the results that have come to us from the regions are a true reflection of what they have received, they then append their signatures to it before the results are brought to my attention. As Returning Officer of the 2020 presidential election, I then certify these results. Out of the 14 results received, we have certified seven up to date”, she noted.

The outcome of the 2020 general election is much likely to be known by close of Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Electoral Commission (EC) has assured.

It comes after the Commission was unable to do so a day after close of polls as it had originally planned.

According to the EC, it expects to soon declare the presidential results of the polls as it received regional collated results of 14 regions and awaits that of two other regions.

Seven of the 14 regional results have so far been officially certified.

This was made known by the Chairperson of the Commission, Madam Jean Mensa in a midnight press briefing.

Touching on its inability to declare the results in 24 hours, the EC explained that it had to revise its schedule due to rains and other technical challenges that were recorded at some collation centres across the country.

“We express our regret for our inability to declare the results at 5 pm on Tuesday as planned. The unexpected rains and some of the challenges we experienced at the collation centre made it difficult to declare the result as expected. We are hoping that, in the early hours of today, we will receive two additional results and will thereafter be able to make the declaration today.
