Ghanaians have expressed mixed reactions to the Electoral Commission’s (EC) statement that there will be no room for the transfer of votes in the 2020 elections.

In less than six months, electorates will be heading to the polls to decide who rules the country for the next four years.

The road to the 2020 general election has been fraught with a number of controversies. The elections management body has been hit with legal suit challenging the authority’s decision to come up with a new voters register.
