The streets were teeming outside the New Patriotic Party (NPP) headquarters in Asylum Down, Accra with hundreds of angry NPP supporters vowing to "fight" the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for what they believe is a stolen election.
On Sunday evening, two days after the polls first opened on Friday 7 December, the head of the Electoral Commission (EC) Kwadwo Afrai-Gyan announced that John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was president, having secured 50.7% of the national vote to the NPP candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo's 47.74%.
As a police truck tried to make its way through the insults were being thrown its way by the crowd. One distraught woman had to be held back by her fellow NPP comrades as she attempted to confront one of the policemen.
Around the corner, in a much calmer setting, the NPP campaign team were strategising on what their next move would be. According to one party official, a team of 30-people are currently sifting through various reports and statistics to find out whether or not they have a case, strong enough to stand in court.
There are indeed irregularities. An electoral register issued by the EC to the parties 10 days before election day showed that there were approximately 14,032,000 registered voters. However when announcing the official presidential and parliamentary results, the EC commissioner said there were 14,158,890 registered voters.
Over 127,000 new voters had been registered despite the fact that all changes to the register had to have been made a maximum of 42 days before election day. This is just one of the many discrepancies that the NPP hope will fall in their favour if they were indeed to go to court. An official statement from the party is expected on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, a little further away in Nima, one of the capital's biggest slums, a street party for the incumbent NDC was in full swing. Campaign anthems were being blasted from speakers and dancing celebrants poured onto the roads rejoicing the party's win.
The NPP have just 21 days to make a formal appeal and perhaps cut the NDC party short.
