Voting Characterized with Apathy

Accra, Sept 01, GNA – Apathy characterized the low turn-out in the on-going Local Level Elections to elect District Assembly and Unit Committee members.

Some residents at Osu Kinkawe, the Ghana News Agency spoke to, said they have lost interest in the district assembly elections because they have not seen any development in their areas and would therefore not participate.

‘I will suggest that these elections should be tied to the presidential and parliamentary elections so that the assembly officers elected will work closely with Members of Parliament who will be elected to bring development in our areas,’ Nii Amartey, an Auto mechanic said.

Voting kicked off at 0700 hours with election officials and materials ready for the process at various polling centres within Osu electoral area in the Greater Accra Region.
