Election 2020

Akuffo Addo re-elected as President of Ghana.

Returning Officer of the 2020 Presidential Elections Jean Adukwei Mensa, who is also the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), declared the incumbent president winner of the polls.

She, however, stated that the total number of votes cast, 13,434,574, which represented a 79 percent voter turnout, was without the votes of Techiman South Constituency in the Bono East Region.Mrs Mensa later explained that the difference of 515,524 between the votes for Mr Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Mr Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot be overturned by results from Techiman South, which has a total of 128,018 registered voters.

She said even if all the votes are added to that of Mr Mahama, he will get about 47.873 percent while Mr Akufo-Addo will get 50.8 percent.

“It is on that basis that we say the outcome of the elections will not change, hence our declaration of the 2020 presidential results without that of Techiman South [Constituency].”

She made all these known at a press conference at the head office of the Commission.

Mrs Mensa expressed gratitude to her team for the successes chalked in Monday’s elections, which she said did not record any violence or hitches during polls.

“To the dear citizens of our country, we thank you for believing in us and for walking this journey with us. Your constructive feedback has helped strengthen our processes and our works and has led us to a much better place than when we started.”

Aside the two major contenders, Christian Kwabena Andrews of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) came third,a position he occupied on the ballot paper.
