Ghana Election Update

Ghana's main opposition party said on Sunday the country's presidential election had been manipulated, raising concerns about the outcome of the poll in a nation seen as a bulwark of democracy in an unstable region.

The National Patriotic Party called on the electoral commission to delay the official announcement of results hours after local media projected its candidate Akufo-Addo had narrowly lost to incumbent John Dramani Mahama.

"It will be unfortunate for the EC (Election Commission) to go ahead to announce the elections," NPP chairman Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey told reporters at a news conference in Accra.
