Congratulations to the people of Ghana. The West African democracy held major elections on Sunday 12/7 and all indications are that they continue to lead the way in peaceful, diverse, elections on the continent.
A run-off will be held on 12/28 between the top two Presidential vote getters because neither received 50% of the popular vote as required.
As reported on ghanaweb :
“While noting some procedural and organisational problems, foreign observers were full of praise for Ghana’s elections to choose a new parliament and a successor to President John Kufuor, who steps down in January after the maximum two terms.
Ghana is one of Africa’s few stable democracies and the election marks its fifth consecutive democratic vote. International election observers pronounced the first round free and transparent.”
