The (other) big election
Yes, with seven days to go all eyes are on the upcoming US elections. But I’ll also be following Ghana’s vote in December.
Unlike the yanks, Ghana has no less than 8 candidates for president ranging from Prof. John Atta Mills to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
And whatever you might think of elections on the African continent, the website of Ghana’s electoral commission suggests this is a poll sat firmly in the 21st century.
From my own experience covering a tiny by-election there way back in 2003, people take politics really seriously!
Still it’ll be sad to see the back of John Kufour, possibly the world leader with the deepest voice!
