Results are expected to be close between President Nana Akufo-Addo, 76, of the center-right New Patriotic Party (NPP) running for a second term, and his predecessor, John Mahama, of the center-left National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Residents of the seaside capital, Accra, went about their daily routines as normal on Tuesday.


“I’m happy that there was no conflict or confusion but I’m sad that my winner appears to be losing,” said the 32-year-old who voted for Mahama.

“I’m disappointed but life goes on.”

Provisional estimates were put out by the presidency Tuesday morning but only the electoral commission can release official results.

According to the presidency’s tally from 91 percent of polling stations, Akufo-Addo received 52.25 percent of votes and Mahama 46.44 percent.
