Voting

There is relative peace in the Sunyani East Constituency, as delegates of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) ballot nationwide to elect parliamentary candidates for Election 2020.

So far, the elections, being conducted by the Electoral Commission (EC) were going on smoothly, during a visit by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) to a number of polling stations.

The contest is between Mr. Alfred Tuah-Yeboah, the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regional Chairman of the Ghana Bar Association and a former Deputy Regional Secretary of the NPP and Mr. Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh, the incumbent MP who has been in parliament since January 2009.

Though the GNA gathered five delegates were expected to cast their ballots at a polling station in the constituency, as at 0630 hours, some of them had arrived to vote.

Voting however, started at exactly 0700 hours without hitches and is expected to end by 1300 hours.
Mr. Charles Nyarko, the Polling Officer (PO) at Ahenboboano Electoral Area in the Sunyani central business district (CBD) said 10 out of 25 delegates voted as at 0720 hours.

That electoral area is made of four polling stations which were combined as one polling station.
In the same vein, the Atoase Electoral Area, also in the CBD had five polling stations but were converted to one.

Mr. Charles Asante, the PO said about 45 delegates were expected to cast their ballots at that area.
There was security presence at all the polling stations.
