General News of Thursday, 21 December 2017
Some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from Ellembelle in the Western Region, have held a demonstration at the party’s headquarters at Asylum Down in Accra.
The demonstrators, who are polling station executives, are protesting against what they said was inaccessibility to registers to organize constituency elections in Ellembelle.
They want their polling station registers for updates but claim their Constituency Chairman, Mr Samuel Kainyah, is refusing to distribute the registers.
Some of the executives claim Mr Kainyah is acting on the orders of the Acting National Chairman Freddie Blay, thus their demonstration at the headquarters.
According to the protesters, several attempts to get the registers have proven futile, hence the march to the party headquarters on Thursday, December 21.
The Ellembelle polling station executives who invaded the NPP headquarters are scheduled to present a petition to the national executives.
