Mr Samuel Tettey, the EC Director of Electoral Services speaking at a press conference in Accra on Thursday morning said by law it is the Commission that had the mandate to declare election results.

The press conference was held in reaction to the declaration of the results by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), claiming victory.

As 0240 hours, Mr Tettey said the Commission was yet to receive and declare any certified result.

He urged the public to remain calm as they await the election results.

He said the delay in the results being released was due to the fact that under the new system the EC was combining manual and electronic means in the compilation of the outcome.
