Ghana Opposition Meets to Discuss Loss

Comments: 1  | Leave A Comment

But across the nation’s capital, life went on as normal. Friday’s presidential and parliamentary election ran into technical problems, after election officials installed biometric machines to identify voters through their fingerprints. No backup was planned and in scores of precincts, the machines failed to work, forcing the electoral body to extend voting into a second day.

The opposition says that the ruling party used the disorder that ensued to falsify results and rig the election in favor of Mahama, who was thrust to the fore in July, after the death in office of the country’s ex-President John Atta Mills.

Like most of its neighbors, Ghana suffered numerous coups before setting itself on a path to democracy. Despite the technical glitches, Friday’s election is being hailed as the sixth free and fair vote in the country’s history. No other country in the region has had as many transparent polls.

Although the opposition is claiming vote-rigging, international observers said that the vote was an overall success, and another notch in the belt of Ghana’s democratic progress.
