False! James Gyakye Quayeson yet to be declared MP-elect

Claim: Twitter user, @AnnanPerry, has shared an image of the candidate for the National Democratic Congress, James Gyakye Quayeson, and declared him MP-elect. 


The tweet was posted at 5:44 pm, barely an hour after the end of polls.

The counting and collation of results are ongoing across various polling centres in the constituency. Even though some results have been declared from some polling stations, no candidate has been declared the winner. Hence, the sharing of congratulatory flyers is misleading. 

The Electoral Commission is yet to announce a winner for the election.

Verdict: False
