At least 263 delegates are expected to vote to elect new executives in the Bono Region for the NPP ahead of the 2024 general election.
The delegates are coming from the 12 constituencies of the Bono Region.
Twenty-six aspirants comprising 23 males and three females are contesting for regional executive positions to steer the affairs of the party in the region the next four years.
Daniel Donkor reports that there is heavy security presence at the Catholic Pastoral Center in Sunyani to ensure a smooth and violent free election in the Bono region.
The Counter Terrorism Unit are also on the grounds to prevent any terrorist attack.
Two Bono Region constituencies barred from voting
The high court has restrained the Sunyani East and the Jaman South executives of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) from taking part in the voting process of the Bono regional elections slated for Sunday (29 May).
The court presided by Gabriel N Kwao Mate-Teye has instructed the Electoral Commission of Ghana and the party to carried out the directive.
However, the party leadership said it is yet to cite the court injunction.
“You see for the first time in the Bono Region election, this committee headed by myself Kwabena Oppong have been very transparent in everything that we do. So, on 29 May the elections will go on,” the chairman of the Bono regional election committee, Kwabena Oppong told Asaase News.
“As I speak to you now, I have not cited anything, heard or read it in any form or shape. So, the elections will go on, none of my committee members have even informed me about this.
“So, every constituency will vote. All the 12 constituencies will vote and that is the emphasis,” Oppong said.
