The Electoral Commission (EC) has disclosed that it will revert to the manual process of transmitting results from all the collation centres to the national headquarters.

This implies that unlike the 2016 elections where the electronic system was used alongside the existing manual one to have parallel modes that transmitted results concurrently, there would be only a single mode of transmitting results this year.

Deputy Chair at the Commission in Charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Eric Bossman Asare said the manual system is a standard one with no problem.

He said the EC would make sure all those in charge of the various polling stations do their work well.

During the previous national elections in the then Commission under the leadership of Charlotte Osei used both manual and electronic processes to transmit the result, but the electronic system was later suspended. The then Commission explained that it was compromised making the EC request Returning Officers at the collation centres to stop using it and revert to the manual system.

Meanwhile, with about six weeks to this year’s elections, the Commission has reiterated its commitment to ensure that no voter including those in hard to reach areas is disenfranchised.

Dr. Bossman Asare said the Commission has procured rechargeable lamps for all the centres especially communities with power difficulties.
