Abu Mubarik, for Ghana Decides
Certified results from some of the over 26,000 polling centres of the 275 constituencies have put the two leading contenders, incumbent President John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Akufo Addo of the New Patriotic Party in a tight race in Ghana’s presidential race.
The other six presidential hopefuls are not making any significant impact in votes, per the certified results released so far
Some senior members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have lost their bid to return to parliament.
On the parliamentary results, it is emerging that some incumbent Members of Parliament have lost their seats.
Key among them is the current MP of Talensi in the Upper East Region, John Tia Akologu. He lost his seat to the New Patriotic Party’s Robert Nachinab Doameng Mosore. Mr John Tia, a former Information Minister polled 9,119 as against Mr. Mosore’s 11,380.
Another casualty from the ruling NDC is the affable Moses Asaga from the Nabdam constituency who lost to Boniface Gambila Adagbila.
It been 48 hours since Ghanaians went to the polls. Friday’s voting was generally characterized with malfunctioning biometric verification machines which forced the electoral commission to delay and further postpone voting in some polling stations to Saturday 8 December.
