After the election the NPP agents refused to sign the pink sheet from the Kadia polling station where there was controversy, the EC went ahead to announce NDC’s candidate as winner.

Reports indicate that this held up the declaration of the final results from the EC and now as far as this is off, the Chairperson of the EC Jean Mensa will declare the results soon.

The NPP had earlier alleged voter irregularities but have now decided to sign the sheet.

The EC has earlier indicated that it will formally declare the 2020 presidential election results at 5 pm on December 8, 2020 but that did not happen as it was postponed.

The declaration is schedule to be done at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
