Electoral Commission

Counting of votes in the presidential and parliamentary elections has started in all 5,089 polling centres across the 47 constituencies in the Ashanti Region.

Ashanti has a voter population of 2,885,419, the second highest – coming only after Greater Accra.

Voting, which began at 0700 hours was generally peaceful and smooth with no reported nasty incident.

Mr Simon Osei-Mensah, the Ashanti Regional Minister, and Brigadier-General Joseph Aphour, General Officer Commanding the Central Command of the Ghana Armed Forces, both applauded the people for the comportment and peaceful conduct of the election.

Some of the voters also praised the Electoral Commission (EC) for the measures and systems put in place that reduced delays at polling centres.

The outcome of the election is expected to be ready within 24 hours.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
