The Electoral Commission of Ghana has debunked claims by the main opposition New Patriotic Party that they (NPP) have won the elections.

The Electoral governing body has emphasised in a press conference , that they have not confirmed any results hence should be waited on as far as declaration of any official results is concerned.

This comes after the main opposition New Patriotic Party claimed victory insisting that results they had collated so far gives them that mandate to claim victory.

In an NPP press conference, campaign manager of the opposition New Patriotic Party challenged the National Democratic Congress to concede defeat.

"I am asking Mahama to concede defeat" Peter Mac Manu said earlier.

However in response to the NPP's self-declared results, the Electoral Commission has reiterated that, the chairman of the EC Mrs Charlotte Osei is the presiding officer of the presidential elections and reserves the mandate to make an official declaration of election results.

Some 15,703,890 registered voters were expected to cast their ballot at about 29,000 polling stations to elect a president and 275 Members of Parliament.

Elections in Ghana are famously closely fought, with Mahama narrowly winning in 2012 with 50.7 percent.
