What We Are Doing[edit]

Thank you for all the edits of Ghana's election related Wikipedia articles. Wiki For Election 2012 Ghana continues post election.

We are still editing Wikipedia articles which profile politicians who competed (flag-bearers and MPs alike), political parties and the various voting constituencies as facts may change after election 2012.

You are invited to join this mass edit-a-thon.
