317 names added to Ablekuma North special voting list

Three hundred and seventeen more eligible voters were added to the original list of 554 for the Ablekuma North Constituency during the second phase of the special voting which ended on Monday.

Out of the final list of 871, 386 people representing about 44 per cent were able to cast their votes. Three hundred and eighteen out of the 554 voters representing about 57 per cent were able to exercise their franchise during the first phase, which took place on December 1.

Mr Daniel Kofi Yirenkyi, Presiding Officer at the Darkuman Police Station, which was the only centre for the Constituency, made this known to the Ghana News Agency.

Mr Yirenkyi said seven voters could not find their names in the final register and were therefore turned away.

Party agents for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were at the centre to monitor the exercise but there was no agent for the other parties which were taking part in the presidential and parliamentary polls slated for December 7.

Three candidates, Sally Amaki Darko Attopee of the NDC, Nana Akua Owusu Afriyieh of the NPP and Akwasi Asiamah-Adade are the only ones contesting in the parliamentary elections in the constituency. The Ablekuma North Constituency seat is currently being occupied by the NPP. GNA
