The Northern Regional Executive committee of the ruling New Patriotic Party has suspended the Yendi constituency executive elections slated for today, Thursday April 28.

The suspension follows a petition by some 123 aggrieved polling station executives whose names were removed from the polling station register.

The matter was initially taken to court but was later withdrawn and sent before an alternative Dispute Resolution Committee constituted by the regional executive committee.

Earlier at a press conference on Sunday April 24, the aggrieved polling station executives at a press conference in Yendi threatened to disrupt the elections.

Information available to 3news.com indicate the presidency called for the suspension of the elections to resolve the internal matters.

This brings to 16 the number of constituencies to hold the delegates conference from April 28 to May 1.

Over 5000 delegates across 16 constituencies are expected to vote in the northern Region.
