NDC Primaries: Voting underway…delays, suspensions at some centers

Voting is underway across the country as regards the primaries of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Voting began smoothly in most of the constituencies but disruptions have characterized others, resulting in suspension of polls.

Confusion in the Kumbungu Constituency has led to the suspension of polls while a legal action has led to an injunction on the exercise in Tano North Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Delays have also characterised others. In Ahafo Ano North, for example, incumbent Member of Parliament Kwasi Adusei complains the delay could affect voter turnout.

He told TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar that aspirants have agreed to begin voting at 10:00am.

From Ningo Prampram, our correspondent Nana Kweku Aduah reports that voting is yet to start amidst confusion.

There are no officers of the Electoral Commission at the various voting centers, TV3’s Nana Kweku Aduah says.

A meeting is currently being held to determine on the next step to take. In attendance is Sam George, who is has mounted a strong challenge to incumbent MP E. T. Mensah.

In Builsa South, 30 card-bearing members of the NDC are yet to find their names in the register, our correspondent Rabiu Tanko Mohammed reports.

In Ashaiman, TV3’s Josephine Frempong reports that voting began smoothly Saturday morning.

She reports also that the incumbent MP Alfred Agbesi has expressed unhappiness with the exercise especially after some regional and national executives openly declared support for one of the candidates Ernest Norgbey.
