A State-owned publishing company, the Assembly Press says copies of the gazetted documents of the 2020 General Election results will be on sale from today.
The Publishing Company further indicated that work on the gazetted results are complete and ready for the public to pick up.
The Assembly Press company is responsible for the gazetting of the election results declared by the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC).
In accordance with Constitutional Instrument (C. I 135), the Assembly Press on December 10 gazetted the declaration of the 2020 Presidential election, which has been signed by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Madam Jean Mensa.
However, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the just ended election is flawed and has sent notice of their decision to contest the result at the Supreme Court of the land.
In an interaction with JoyNewsnite recently, the Managing Director for the Assembly Press, David Asante pointed out that Publishing Company is in readiness to serve the public.
“If you are telling me that the EC has released a document saying we should go ahead and give them to the public, it is that simple. The next business day, we will make it available on the shelves for the public to pick it up,” he assured.
He further clarified that; “Tuesday is the next working day, we will make it available.”
The Managing Director disclosed that the Assembly Press may also ensure that copies of the gazetted results are uploaded onto its website.
Meanwhile, one can see the presence of heavy Military and Police deployed to the premises of the Assemblies Press to deter any possible demonstrations by any group.
In another breath, the Electoral Commission (EC) in a statement sighted by Capitalnewsonline.com says the public should ignore results being shared on social media.
“The Gazetted results of the 2020 parliamentary elections can be purchased at the Assembly Press,” the statement added.
