Ghana President re-elected

Ghana’s sitting President Nana Akufo-Addo has won the country’s 2020 presidential elections.

Electoral Commission chairperson Mrs. Jean Mensa made the official declaration Wednesday evening in Accra.

The incumbent president, according to the electoral body, recorded a total of 6,730,413 votes representing 51.295%.

The declared results exclude votes from Techiman-South Constituency which the commission said has been delayed.

She said the outstanding votes from the Techiman-South Constituency would not be enough to change the outcome of the election.

Former President John Dramani Mahama, who is a candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress, has rejected the results.
