The Electoral Commission has called for calm following an announcement by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) indicating that the party has won the presidential elections per their projections.
At a press conference Thursday, the Director of Elections, Mr Samuel Tettey said the Commission was yet to receive any certified results from the collation centres across the country.
“It has come to the attention of the Electoral Commission the press conference held by the New Patriotic Party on the results of the 2016 presidential elections. We wish to state that currently the Commission has not received any certified collated results from the various constituencies nationwide.”
He stressed that, “By law, it is only the chairperson who can declare the certified results of the 2016 presidential elections.”
“The Commission therefore urges the general public to remain calm while it awaits the certified results,” Me Tettey said.
