Ghana election: Main opposition leader wins presidential elections

It is third time lucky for Ghana opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo. He has been declared president after defeating incumbent John Mahama by 53.8 percent to 44.4 percent in the country’s national election.
“The chairperson of the electoral commission declared me the winner of the 2016 presidential election,” said Akufo-Addo.
Akufo-Addo, of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), served as foreign minister and attorney general in a previous NPP government.

Akufo-Addo’s win brought his supporters out onto the streets to celebrate.

It is the third time the government’s been voted out since 2000 – cementing Ghana’s reputation as a standard bearer of democracy in a region blighted by civil wars and coups.
