ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana's main opposition leader Nana Akufo-Addo said on Thursday he was "quietly confident" of victory, one day after elections, and added that his New Patriotic Party had gained 49 seats in parliament to take a majority.

The electoral commission is yet to release results from Wednesday's vote but the opposition said it had tabulated results from constituencies and based its confidence on those figures.
