Thousands jubilate in President Mahama's victory
News Date: 10th December 2012


Thousands of jubilant supporters of the victorious National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Sunday night poured onto the streets to celebrate the election of President John Dramani Mahama in the 2012 presidential poll.

Clad in NDC T-shirts and carrying NDC flags and paraphernalia, they blocked the roads in several parts of Accra drumming and dancing. There was also brassband music at Batsona as the celebrants marched along.

They tooted the horns of their cars and shouted the catchy NDC slogan of “Ide Bee Keke”.

President Mahama polled 5,574,761 votes (50.70%) while his closest contestant Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic (NPP) polled 5,248,898 votes (47.74%).

Dr Michael Abu Sakara Foster of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) had 20,323 (0.18%); Mr Hassan Ayariga of the People’s National Convention (PNC), 24,617 (0.22%); Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), 64,362 (0.59%); Dr Henry Lartey of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), 38,223 (0.35%); Mr Joseph Osei-Yeboah (Independent), 15,201 (0.14%) and Mr Akwasi Addai of the United Front Party (UFP), 8,877 (0.08%).

The percentage turn-out was 79.43 with total registered voters being 14,158,890. Total votes cast were 11,246,982 and total valid votes being 10,995,262. Total rejected votes were 251,720. The elections were held in 275 constituencies nationwide.
