    Ghanaians wait their turn to vote at outdoor polling stations in Accra, Ghana, Friday, Dec. 7, 2012. Ghanaians went to the polls Friday to choose between four candidates, including President John Dramani Mahama, who inherited the top post in July after President John Atta Mills died in office, and Nana Akufo-Addo, who lost the presidency by less than one percent to Mills in 2008. With its coup era over and five peaceful elections under its belt, Ghana is expected to hold a peaceful poll as voters decide which candidate will ensure the country's new-found wealth reaches the poor and middle-class.
