Ghana’s incumbent President John Dramani Mahama is calling his election win “a victory for all Ghanaians” after the electoral commission confirmed he gained 50.7 percent of the ballot. 
 
Mahama replaced former president John Atta Mills, who died in July.
 
“John Dramani Mahama brought a lot of credit -people look at his humility, his peaceful nature.
This is the type of person our democracy needs as a president at this stage,” said General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Aseidu Nketiah.
 
The result was enough for Mahama to
avoid a run-off with his chief rival Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party, who lost an election in 2008 by less than one percent.
 
The opposition are alleging fraud in Friday’s election. One NPP leader said he had evidence of electoral workers conspiring to rig tallies.
 
The failure of newly-introduced fingerprint identification machines caused delays, leading to some polling stations having to reopen on Saturday
