But according to Mr. Mac Manu, he instead said his party was going to collate their results in along with the EC.
Parallel vote tabulation In an interview with Citi News, he clarified his statements in Takoradi saying, “We are going to collate our own parallel results, what we call parallel vote tabulation.”
Mr. Mac Manu explained that their plans to declare parallel results will be possible “because for the first time, we expect the electoral commission to post results at every polling station when it is declared by the presiding officers.”
“So we will take all the 29,000 polling station results declared by the electoral commission own presiding and collate our own parallel results to compare with what the EC is declaring,” he added.
