Video: Ghana election results


The generally peaceful presidential and parliamentary elections of Ghana is going into a second round because none of the candidates failed to obtain 50% of the votes cast. Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, released the results of the 2008 elections on Wednesday 10 December 2008.

The ruling  NPP had 4,159,439 (49.13%) of the total valid votes cast. The main opposition party the National Democratic Congress (NDC) also had 4,056,634 (47.92%) of the total valid votes cast.

This video captures reaction from NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketia and NPP General Secretary Nana Ohene Ntow as well as members of the public.

The CPP came third with 113494 (1.34%) of the valid vote cast, PNC had 73,494 (0.87%). The DFP also had 27,889 (0.33%) of the valid vote cast as well as the RPD had 6,889 (0.08%) of the valid votes cast. The DPP also had 8,653 (0.10%). The only independent candidate in the race had 19,342 (0.23%) of the valid votes cast.

The total number of registered voters was 12,472,758 out of which 8,671,272 voted. The total number of rejected votes amounted to 205,432 representing 2.4%. Total percentage turn out was 69.52.

I am shocked because the government has done a lot to have won this election – NPP General Secretary Nana Ohene Ntwo.
