NDC constituency elections in C/R postponed

October 22, 2022

Most National Democratic Congress (NDC) delegates who thronged the Adisadel College park for Saturday’s constituency elections were left disappointed as the album and the ballots were not ready.

After waiting for several hours in the morning, the delegates were asked to return home and come the following day, Sunday, October 23, for the exercise.

In an interview with Media General‘s Thomas Vincent Cann, a Secretary to the Central Region Communications Officer, Eric Offei, said the ballot papers for the elections were not ready.

He, therefore, called for calm among delegates.

This comes in the wake of injunctions on some constituencies.

Most of the delegates expressed frustrations at the outcome of the event, saying it is a wrong signal for the largest opposition party in its attempt to wrestle power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to them, if the party cannot organise such an internal election, it begs the question if they can manage the country.

Some aspirants, however, took advantage to continue to campaign despite expressing worry and disappointment.

They urged the delegates to show up on Sunday to vote.

Voting is, however, ongoing for some constituencies including Assin South, Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam, Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem and Awutu Senya West.

The NDC is electing its constituency executives on Saturday and Sunday.

The party will then elect regional executives in November before going for the national executive elections on Saturday, December 17.
