Voting begins across polling centres in Ghana to choose a President and Members of Parliament

Voting has begun in the various polling stations throughout Ghana, to elect a president and 275 Members of Parliament. Queues started forming from the wee hours of the morning, indicating that that turnout is likely to be high. In all, voting will take place in 26,000 polling stations nationwide.

Voting which began at 7am (7:00GMT), is expected to close at 5pm (17:00 GMT).

In some polling stations, queues were formed as early as 12 midnight local time , seven clear hours before voting begun, while others were found loitering around the stations hours earlier despite a torrential rainfall. In some of the centres prospective voters had planted objects such as stones and blocks in queues, as symbols to indicate their positions in the queue while they retired home to return at dawn, all in a bid to get the opportunity to vote early.
