Ghanaians went to the polls Friday to choose between four candidates, including President John Dramani Mahama, the former vice president who ascended to the top post after President John Atta Mills died in office in July, and Akufo-Addo, who lost the presidency by less than one percent in 2008. 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. (AP Photo/Christian Thompson)
