Center-right presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo (pictured in white) has drawn big campaign rallies
If correct, Friday's election will mark the first time in Ghanaian history that voters kicked a sitting president to the curb. From Joy Online (Ghana): "With [two] days before polls open in Ghana,
Africa’s most competitive democratic state, DaMina Advisors reiterates
its August statistical forecast that the opposition center-right New
Patriotic Party (NPP) is on course to likely win about 52% in a first
round vote clincher and defeat the ruling center-left National
Democratic Congress (NDC), after only one term in office. The
NDC won the 2008 elections by just 40,000 votes out of almost 9 million
cast. (In 2008, the model correctly forecasted the NDC narrow victory).
On Friday December 7, according to two statistical models, which are
reproduced [in the article], the opposition is poised to win by a margin of over
400,000 votes and regain power."
