The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has asked Ghanaians to give confidence to the Presidential Election results declared by the Electoral Commission as it reflects accurately how citizens voted on December 7, 2020.
CODEO at a press briefing on Thursday morning [December 10, 2020] also encouraged any party or candidate with issues about the presidential results to peacefully resolve these through proper legal and procedural channels.
The group said it monitored the election by deploying 1,502 Parallel Voter Tabulation (PVT).
Observers who were deployed used a nationally representative random sample of polling stations located in every region and constituency of the country.
“CODEO appeals to Ghanaians to remain calm, law-abiding and allow the systems to work. CODEO further commends the maturity shown by Ghanaians throughout the voting, counting, and collating processes” the Acting Chair of CODEO, Sheikh Arimiyawo Shaibu said at the press briefing.
“CODEO deeply regrets the isolated cases of violence at some polling stations and constituency collation centers, which led to the loss of lives. CODEO expresses its condolences to the bereaved families, and wishes the injured citizens a speedy recovery”.
