Ghana's populist president Jerry Rawlings and his main rival John Kufuor were neck and neck yesterday as provisional results trickled in from presidential and parliamentary elections.

Rawlings, who twice seized power in the former British colony, had landslide wins in his home Volta region in the east. Kufuor enjoyed similar success in and around his stronghold of Kumasi.
