Chaos has erupted in the ongoing New Patriotic Party (NPP) regional executive election in the Ashanti region as delegates from Manhyia North who have been barred from voting by a court demanded to be allowed to vote in the polls.
The process came to a standstill at Ejura where the election is being held after chairman of the polls in the region F.F. Anto insisted he would not allow the 17 delegates to vote despite persistent lobbying by the regional chairman Wontumi.
According to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako Justice, who is monitoring the polls, Mr Anto insists he would not allow them to vote because the party did not make provision for them ahead of the polls, due to the court order.
However, after a meeting among the various stakeholders, Bediako reports, the delegates maybe allowed to vote in order to maintain peace.
The ruling party is electing its regional executives across the country today Saturday April 21,2018.
