Ghana gears up for elections in the wake of the death of a president

The West African state of Ghana is considered to be one of Africa’s success stories. The country will be holding presidential elections in December 2012 – an election which has taken on a new dimension since the death of its president, John Atta Mills, in July. But while Ghana is experiencing high economic growth, the new incumbent will face challenges, particularly on unemployment.
