On 7th December 2020, Ghanaians went to the polls for the 8th elections in this fourth republic and it has been arguably the most successful and peaceful elections so far. The incumbent president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was re-elected for the second and final term. He pulled a whopping 6730587 of the valid votes cast representing 51.3% while his biggest contender and leader of the opposition party, John Dramani Mahama also got 6213182 votes representing 47.4%.
Some Members of Parliament also gained re-election with some paving way for others to take their place in Ghana’s next parliament.
Among the many elected legislators, were a number of women who would rub shoulders with their fellow male MPs to take and make decisions for the country.
Surprisingly, the 40 female MPs-elect have been split evenly between the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and opposition National Democratic Congress.
No independent female candidate made it to parliament this time.
