Results of today’s presidential and parliamentary primaries have started trickling in after counting ended in some polling stations across the country.
Provisional results point to overwhelming endorsement of President John Mahama’s candidature for the 2016 presidential election. Nonetheless the prayers and threats by some party leaders to cow every voter to cast his or her ballot for John Mahama were not fully adhered to.
