2023 District Level Elections

The Electoral Commission of Ghana has officially declared the necessity of conducting run-off elections to break ties in the recently concluded (DLE) held across the country.

This announcement is in line with the District Level Elections Regulations, 2015 (C.I. 89).

The commission disclosed that after collating results from the DLE, 20 Electoral Areas for Assembly Members and 41 Electoral Areas for Unit Committee Members reported identical outcomes for the contestants.

Consequently, run-off elections will be conducted in these areas to determine the winners and break the electoral ties.

The run-off elections are scheduled for Tuesday, January 9, 2024, at all the polling stations within the identified Electoral Areas where ties were recorded.

In a statement released by Michael Boadu, Acting Head of Public Affairs at the Electoral Commission, he stated, “The list of Electoral Areas involved in the elections to break the ties is attached.”

The Electoral Commission urges the general public and the concerned contestants to participate in the run-off elections, contributing to the democratic process and ensuring accurate representation at the local level.
