EC to go on break for 27 days amidst election results protests

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced it will be going on Christmas and New Year break and will resume on Tuesday, January 19 2021.

In a statement issued by the commission, they will go a long break from official duties on Wednesday 23 December 2020 which will last for the next 27 days.

Excerpt of the statement reads:

“Following the successful and peaceful conduct of the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, Management has decided that the Commission will break for Christmas and New Year on Wednesday, 23th December 2020 and resume duty on Tuesday, 19th January 2021.”

This break by the EC comes at a time when the opposition party NDC is protesting the outcome of the 2020 election results as presented by Jean Mensa on December 9 2020.

There have been several protests that have been staged across the country by supporters of the NDC who are calling for the immediate overturn of the election results with the infinite belief that their candidate John Mahama won the election.

Meanwhile, today December 22 2020, NDC MPs were prevented from submitting their petition to the EC as afar as the 2020 election results are concerned but were prevented by the police from doing so.
