The Electoral Commission(EC) has finally released the “pink sheets” of the 2020 presidential elections.

The pink sheets which are the official documents showing the total number of votes respective candidates polled in the election were released on Wednesday, December 16, 2020.

As widely known, Ghana went to the polls on Monday, December 7, 2020, in an election which had 12 candidates seeking the people’s mandate to be president.

Two days after the polls, the Electoral Commission, led by its chairperson Jean Mensa, declared incumbent president, Nana Akufo-Addo as the winner.

Per Mrs Mensa’s declaration, Akufo-Addo defeated his closest contender, John Mahama of the NDC, by over 500,000 votes. But the NDC has since rejected the declaration with Mahama describing it as tantamount to illegality.

According to Mahama, there were violations of the law governing the election and thus makes EC’s declaration illegal.

Days after the declaration and the rejection by the NDC, the EC has posted the “pink sheets” on its website.

Sixteen in total, the pink sheets show how each of the presidential candidates performed in the sixteen regions of the country.
