Conting in the Ghanaian elections is now over, but none of the presidential candidates was able to get the required absolute majority needed. This means that there should be a run-off between the two top candidates Nana Akufo Ado who had 49.13% and the Prof John E A Mills who had 47.92%.
But in the parliamentary race the opposition NDC now has the majority seats.
The chairman of the Electoral Commission has announced that the date of the run-off will be December 28.
Both parties have therefore started campaigning towards that day, with the NDC already talking to the other opposition parties.
The main issue now facing the electorate is whether they want a minority president that will make governance difficult due to constitutional requirements or choose to have a more practical majority president.
