Ghana election enters day 2
Voting to elect a new president and parliamentary members in Ghana has entered its second day after technical glitches led to long delays in some areas.
Breakdowns in the biometric voting system which is being used for the first time meant many were unable to exercise their franchise on Friday.
Certified results so far received across the country has clearly indicated that the election is a straight fight between the ruling NDC’s John Mahama and the opposition Flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Observers monitoring the polls have stated that no serious incidents had been reported and the process has been largely smooth.
Results were expected as early as Sunday but it is now not clear if the timeframe would remain after the extension.
Speaking in an interview with XYZ News, Acting Director of the Public Affairs Unit of the Electoral Commission Christian Owusu Parry said results will only be declared when the entire process is over.
