Ghana 2008: Runoff

With data in from 229 out of 230 constituencies, it appears that John Atta-Mills (NDC, centre-left) has won the election. According to the ECG, the results are too close to call since the margin of victory is smaller than the number of registered voters in the lone constituency left to report: Tain constituency, in Brong Ahafo region. The region voted for Akufo-Addo but the constituency gave Atta-Mills 50.7% against nearly 47% for Akufo-Addo. Tain will vote on January 2, for unknown reasons. It is unlikely that the results could change, or atleast that’s what I think. WorldElections.com projects an Atta-Mills victory. Maybe WorldElections.com will go all Florida 2000 and retract our projection, though!

Atta-Mills (NDC) 50.13%
Akufo-Addo (NPP) 49.87%

A map will come a bit later, when all the results are in by region.
