Post election update

We have a new site where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Post election update there.

Post election update:

Sunday: The main street of Osu was a ghost town – hardly a soul to be seen; I guess the usual hustlers were standing in a queue somewhere, waiting their turn to vote – a happy thought.
Most importantly, voting was peaceful. Even in Bawku (read about Bawku in posts below), a traditional "hotspot", there was not a hint of violence.

It’s now Monday morning. The results are coming in! It is extremely close between the two main parties – a few thousand votes (over one million each have been counted) separated the presidential candidates at the last update.

The country is holding its collected breath. It will be at least midnight before a winner is announced. More updates to come.

Tuesday: Still no clear winner - conflicting numbers in the counting.
Peaceful though - business as usual. Good.
