Misunderstanding over the missing names of some 18 delegates voting at the NDC Parliamentary primary underway in the Adenta Constituency has been resolved, paving the way for the exercise to continue.
Some of the delegates had complained about not finding their names on the ballot in the two-horse between former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur and Mr Mohamed A. Ramadan, the party’s 2016 candidate who lost to the New Patriotic Party’s Yaw Buabeng Asamoah.
But the party’s Constituency Election Supervisor, Mr George Tetteh Wayo said the initial hitches was because of challenges concerning two branches which had been resolved.
“There was an initial list we started to use that had a tally of 1360 but before that there were two branches which had internal problems in the constituency. There names are on another list which has now been resolved” he said.
He said when the issue was resolved a new list with all the names was presented to the Electoral Commission’s officers to work with.
Voting started at 7.02 am as of 10.30 am. 500 people had voted in the election in which 1378 delegates are expected to cast their ballot.
