The Electoral Commission (EC) has asked the general public to disregard reports that there has been a meeting at the Commission’s head office in Accra in which the IT department was blamed for computational errors in the results of the 2020 elections. A press statement from the EC in response to a publication that claimed a clandestine meeting was held to cast blame on the EC’s IT Department for collating the 2020 election result. “The commission wishes to categorically state that this is FALSE. No such meeting was held on the 14th December 2020 as alleged, neither will any such meeting be held.
The EC further explained that the election results as declared remain unchanged. “They are based on evidence and facts from the Pink Sheets approved and signed by Agents of the Political Parties,” the statement added. The commission also added that “the collation of the results of the just-ended poll was done manually at Polling Stations, Constituency and Regional Collation Centres before they were forwarded through fax/email to the National Collation Centre at the EC’s headquarters.” The Commission urged the public to disregard the story on social media.
