The Electoral Commissioner of Ghana, Jean Mensa has just declared the incumbent New Patriotic government under the stewardship of Nana Akufo Addo the winner of the just-ended 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.






Ghana consolidated its name as a model of peace and stability in Africa after the country went to the polls on December 7 which was conducted in a customary peaceful atmosphere that has widely been applauded by the international community.




The election was obviously a two-horse race between the largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by former president John Damani Mahama and Nana Akufo Addo.

In announcing the results, the EC’s chairperson, Madam Jean Adukwei Mensa said the NPP obtained 6,730,413 which represents 51.49% as against Mahama’s 6,214,889  being 47.366%
