Ghana’s Electoral Commission declares President Nana Akufo-Addo re-elected for second term.

Ghana’s Electoral Commission has declared President Nana Akufo-Addo (NPP) re-elected for a second term.

But the main opposition NDC Party of former President John Dramani Mahama cries foul.

Breakdown, without the tally from Techiman South constituency where there was shooting during collation:

Akufo-Addo 51.29%

Mahana 47.39%

Reg. Voters 17m

Turnout 78.9%

A candidate requires more than 50% to win.

Ten of the 12 candidates each received less than 1% of the vote.

It is the 3rd time the rival candidates are slugging it out. Mahama defeated Akufo-Addo in 2012, while the incumbent president won in 2016.
