live update voting underway in npp presidential primary

Voting is underway in the election of a Presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 228 out of 230 constituencies in the country. Delegates in Ablekuma South and North in the Greater Accra Region are disenfranchised from today’s historic primary of the biggest opposition party in Ghana.

The two constituencies, Ablekuma North and South respectively, were disenfranchised due to protracted court cases. Other constituencies like Obuasi, Subin and the latest, Asokwa, all in the Ashanti region which had also been bedeviled by lingering court cases have been cleared to vote.

Meanwhile, NPP delegates have been warned to avoid going to polling centres wearing party paraphernalia.

About 113,000 delegates are expected to cast their votes in the party’s first expanded delegates’ conference where election would be done simultaneously in all constituencies across the country.
