Ghana?s Electoral Commission (EC) has adjourned voting to Saturday at some polling stations across the country where the biometric verification of voters could not be completed.

Ghanaians went to the polls today December 7, 2012 to elect a new President and 275 parliamentarians. But the process encountered some technical hitches which have led to the postponement.

In a statement signed by the Deputy Chairman of the Commission, K. Sarfo-Kantanka, the EC has made two directives on where the adjournment affects.

–    At polling stations where the biometric verification of voters could not be completed and as a result some voters in the queue could not be processed to vote,

–    Where election materials arrived very late that all the voters in the queue could not be processed to vote, polling should continue tomorrow, Saturday December 8, 2012 to give the opportunity to the affected persons to vote.

?Presiding Officers should arrange with the police for the safe custody of all ballot boxes and election materials,? the statement added.
