Results of December 28 Presidential run-off to be out in 48 hours

The Electoral Commission (EC) says the results of the December 28 presidential run-off will be released within 48 hours of voting according to a story by Daily Graphic. It also says the results will not be declared in the night. A member of the EC, Mrs Pauline Adobea Dadzawa, said since the run-off was only between two candidates, the process was not likely to take as much time as the December7 election which included parliamentary results.  In the December 7 elections, the EC, as it had promised declared the results within 72 hours.
Mrs. Dadzawa who is the officer in charge of Ashanti region said the EC would not wait for the results from all constituencies to come in before announcing the results. She added that if it becomes clear that the delayed results from the constituencies will not have any effects on the final results, we shall go ahead to declare the results.
