Ghana’s electoral commission has announced the list of seven presidential candidates to contest the 7 December polls.

Three of the eight disqualified candidates who resubmitted their forms have been included on the list. They include Papa Kwasi Ndoum, the presidential hopeful whose legal battle forced the electoral body to reconsider nominations.

Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, wife of former President Jerry Rawlings, has also been added to the list.

President John Dramani Mahama is seeking a second term, in what is expected to be keenly contested election.
