Ghana’s Electoral Commission has called for calm following an announcement by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) indicating that the party has won Wednesday’s 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.

Meanwhile, the John Mahama 2016 Campaign has encouraged supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to remain calm because from the parallel vote tabulation President John Dramani Mahama is in a comfortable lead.

Let us continue to ignore and treat with contempt, claims by some radio and TV stations announcing who is leading the pack or winning the election based on polling station results that do not equate to a total of three constituencies, it said.

A statement signed by signed Mrs Joyce Bawah Mogtari, spokesperson of the campaign team a while ago, asked the supporters to wait on the Electoral Commission to receive and release the verified results.

“We wish to also encourage our supporters to continue to remain calm as the ballots make their way to the constituency collation centres. At this moment, a number of radio stations are announcing polling station results, and not constituency tallies,” the statement said.

The JM Campaign congratulated supporters of the party and the general public for their impressive turnout to vote for President John Dramani Mahama today.”

The campaign team also took notice of the orderly manner of the voting process.

“We recognise also, that the voting process was very smooth and orderly. Voters comported themselves well, despite some isolated incidents and delayed start of voting at a number of polling stations.

It also welcomed the decision of the Electoral Commission to extend voting in the Afram Plains South Constituency and re-opening of the polls in Jaman North Constituency on Thursday.
