The Ghana Football Association (GFA)’s presidential elections are heading for a second round after none of the candidates managed to poll over half of the ballots cast.
The two frontrunners are Dreams FC CEO Kurt Okraku who polled 44 votes and George Afriyie who tallied 40.
Nana Yaw Amponsah finished with 27 votes while Fred Pappoe picked up six endorsements.
Amanda Clinton and George Ankomah both ended with 0 votes.
The bottom two candidates, Ms Clinton and Mr Ankomah drop out of the race while Fred Pappoe also opted to pull out.
The GFA’s Congress has a total of 120 delegates with the Division One League clubs accounting for the largest group; with 48 delegates.
However, only 117 votes were counted with one rejected ballot and two absentees.
The position of GFA President has been vacant since 2018, when Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned following damning revelations in an exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The elections were allowed to proceed after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rejected an injunction appeal by a disqualified Presidential aspirant, Wilfred Osei earlier on Friday.
