Mahama wins Ghana Presidential polls

GHANA: Ghanaian incumbent John Dramani Mahama was on Sunday declared the winner of closely fought presidential polls, but the opposition alleged fraud in a nation that has been seen as a model of African democracy.

The electoral commission announced the result after a day of twists and turns linked to the vote on Friday and Saturday, with the stakes especially high in a country with a booming economy fuelled partly by newly discovered oil. Results compiled by local media had early Sunday pointed to a Mahama win, leading the opposition to strongly reject them, allegingfraud and claiming it had evidence that its candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, was the real winner.

According to the electoral commission, Mahama won with 50.70 percent of the votes cast, compared to Akufo-Addo’s 47.74 percent. With eight candidates in the race, more than 50 percent was needed to avoid a second-round runoff. Turnout was put at more than 79 percent.

The 54-year-old Mahama, previously Vice President, has only been head of state since July following the death of his predecessor John Atta Mills. AFP
