Ghana’s major opposition party, the National Democratic Congress, is conducting polls to elect new constituency executives across Ghana from October 22-23, 2022.
However, voting in the New Juaben South Constituency in the Eastern Region was cancelled due to the absence of ballot papers.
Angry delegates left the Eridex Hotel auditorium, where the election was scheduled to take place
Delegates were peeved over a delay in the voting process which was scheduled to commence at the Hotel auditorium at 8:00 am on Saturday but was delayed.
The process had still not begun at 2 pm, compelling delegates to leave the auditorium.
Some of the angry delegates blamed the regional officers for the delay and accused them of trying to influence the voting process.
EC officials who arrived in the morning said that the delay was because the ballot papers were yet to arrive though they were ready to work.
An EC official said “We have all our materials here, and it’s left with the ballot papers.”
The EC officials eventually packed the ballot boxes and left the auditorium at 2:30 pm.
