Since the EC’s last briefing the four top regions remain the Greater Accra Region, Ashanti Region, Eastern Region and Central Region.

“… though the Greater Accra Region has especially lost some grounds in percentage terms from 21.34 % to 20.8% of the total registered.  The Ashanti region also reduced marginally by 0.1% to its current 17.9%,” the commission announced at a briefing on Friday morning.

“Both the Eastern and the Central regions have maintained their previous 9.6% and 9.3% respectively. Among the remaining regions, the following have increased in percentage terms- Western, Western North, Upper West, Northern, and Upper East- and the following have maintained their percentages- Ahafo, Bono, Bono East, Oti, North East, and Savanna. Only the Volta region reduced in percentage terms in this group.”
