Ghana Poll: Akufo-Addo Wins Second Term As Ghanaian President

 

The incumbent President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, has been re-elected for a second term in the country.

The Electoral Commission Of Ghana declared him President-Elect after he won 51.59 percent of the vote, while his main rival, former president John Mahama, came second with 47.36 percent.

It was gathered that the turnout was high during the election as over 13 million people, or nearly 80 percent of the registered voters, participated in the election, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Though international observers described the poll as peaceful one, there were reports of violence in some parts of the country after Mahama accused his rival of undermining democracy.

Akufo-Addo, who is the candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been in office since January 2017.

Both Akufo-Addo and Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) were also up against each other in the 2016 presidential election.
