The major concerns being reported at some of the polling stations is the deletion of the names of some of the party delegates from the voters register.

As at 12.30, at the Abuakwa North Constituency, 282 delegates in the constituency including the Member of Parliament, Mr J. B. Danquah-Adu had cast their votes.

The constituency has 368 registered delegates.

According to Mr Offei Danso, the Presiding Member of the polling station of the constituency at Old Tafo Presbyterian school, so far 15 of the delegates could not see their names in the voters register.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Mr Allan Kyerematen had their agents at the polling station, and there were also two police personnel to maintain security.

Oheneba Opoku Ofori Atta, the First Vice Constituency Chairman of the NPP who was at the polling station, expressed the hope that all the registered delegates may vote before the close of the polls.

He said, so far, there has not been any major concern at the polling station.

At the time the GNA visited the polling station, at some few metres away from the polling station, one of the delegates who could not find his name in the voters register was visibly annoyed and was threatening to create a scene, but other party members around took him on and he sat in his car and drove off.
