President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been re-elected President of the Republic of Ghana after tough political fight with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Akufo Addo had 6,730,413 votes representing 51.59% and John Mahama had 6,214,889 votes representing 47.36% in this year’s 2020 December elections.
Returning Officer of the 2020 Presidential Elections Jean Adukwei Mensa, who is also the Chair of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC), declared the incumbent president winner of the polls.
She, however, stated that the total number of votes cast, 13,434,574, which represented a 79 percent voter turnout was without the votes of Techiman South Constituency.
Mrs Mensa later explained that the difference of 515,524 between Mr Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Mr Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot be overturned by results from Techiman South.
