By-election: Voting underway at Amenfi West constituency

Voting is underway in the Amenfi West Constituency in the Western Region to elect a Member of Parliament.

A by-election became necessary after the demise of the incumbent NDC MP, John Gyetuah in October this year.

Joy News’ Benjamin Peters reports that some misunderstanding broke out at one of the polling centers, Breman JHS after voters discovered that the electoral roll went missing at about 7am, Tuesday.

“A misunderstanding has erupted between some electorate and the EC officials over missing voters register. They had been told that the register had been taken to a different polling station,” he reported.

As a result, some electorates had been at the polling station since 7am but voting started at about 9am after the police intervened.

The constituency saw some developments ahead of the by-election. Joy News has learnt the construction of asphaltic overlays at Asankragua in Wassa -Amenfi at about 9pm yesterday had been ongoing.

Participating in the race are NPP’s Paul Dekyi, Eric Afful of the NDC, PPP’s Abraham Kojo Buadee and Elvis Adjei of the UF.P.

About 62, 364 eligible voters are expected to vote in 102 polling stations in the constituency.
