ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, DEC. 2, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2008 file photo, National Democratic congress supporters gather outside the electoral commission building to wait for election results to be announced in Accra, Ghana. After five coups and decades of stagnation, the West African nation of 25 million is now a pacesetter for the continent's efforts to become democratic. It's having another presidential election on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, with televised debates between the candidates, campaign messages on Twitter and Facebook, biometric voter IDs, plus a culture that has taken to peaceful politics with gusto.
