An independent candidate in the Kumawu by-election, Kwaku Duah, has expressed disappointment in the Electoral Commission (EC) over the change of his symbol on the ballot paper to a hoe.
The candidate had earlier opted for a falcon which was protested by the other independent candidate who used a white dove with olive leaf in the beak.
The two independent candidates bear the same name, Kwaku Duah with both candidates wrapped in Kente cloth on the ballot paper.
The agitated ‘second’ Kwaku Duah, speaking to Luv FMs Nana Yaw Gyimah, explained his team had sent two different sketches of a bird to the EC to replace the earlier symbol.
He has since accepted the EC’s decision despite his disappointment.
Meanwhile, Kwaku Duah disagrees his campaign has not been vigorous.
He claims other parties are rather bussing people outside the constituency for rallies and other campaign meetings.
