AFP - There will be no final result for Ghana's run-off presidential election until at least Friday, January 2, when the country's 230th constituency Tain, which was unable to vote on Sunday, casts its ballots, the electoral commission said Tuesday.

   
"As of now Professor Atta-Mills is in the lead," commission head Kwado Afari-Gyan told reporters, referring to the opposition party candidate.
   
"The results of the Tain election could make a difference," he added.
   
Afari-Gyan said Atta-Mills currently has 50.13 percent of votes casts, against 49.87 percent for Akufo-Addo, based on results from 229 constituencies.
   
"The results from Tain constituency could affect the eventual winner so we have decided elections in Tain will be held this coming Friday, 2 January," Afari-Gyan said.
   
He did not say when the commission would make public final results as it also intends to investigate allegations of fraud made by both Atta-Mills' National Democratic Congress and Akufo-Addo's ruling New Patriotic Party.
   
"The outcome of this investigation will be factored in to the final determination of the winner," he said.
   
The election was already forced to a second round after the first round December 7 failed to produce a winner.
