The United States congratulates President John Dramani Mahama on his December 7 victory in the Ghanaian presidential race. International observers reported the elections to be free, fair, and transparent. We also commend the Ghanaian people who turned out in overwhelming numbers to participate in Ghana’s sixth successful presidential and parliamentary election since 1992. The Electoral Commission succeeded in guiding Ghana through its first biometric electoral process.
The United States and Ghana continue to enjoy a close friendship based on a shared commitment to democracy and the rule of law. Once again Ghana has shown itself to be a beacon of stability and peace in Africa. We look forward to deepening our relationship with the Ghanaian people and working closely with President Mahama’s administration.
