Political party candidates and independent persons contesting both the presidential and parliamentary elections have between September 9 to 13 to submit nominations to the Commission.

The EC has scheduled balloting of positions on the presidential ballot paper for September 23, 2024, and the parliamentary balloting for September 24, 2024.

Results

The Commission intends to declare the results of the 2024 presidential polls within three days of voting. It is expected that Regional Collation Centres would be maintained to announce the results at the regional level.

The publication of the activities comes after mounting pressure from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), who accused the Commission of unpreparedness over the election management.
