wpid-NPP-Ghana-logo-300x194.gifTrending confrontations are being reported at some polling centres in the New Patriotic Party Super Delegates? congress at the headquarters in Accra, Northern and Volta regions.

Joy FM?s Northern Regional Correspondent, Martina Bugri, reported that a delegate showed-off his ballot, which revealed he voted for one particular candidate.

The action is contrary to the party?s laid down procedures during such elections.

However, party executives were quick to resolve the issue.

The poll?started at 8am and would close at 3pm. A?total of 787 voters are?taking part in the super delegates congress across the regions.

Eleven polling stations have been designated for the process with?an additional one at the party headquarters in Accra.

Elsewhere in the Volta region, Hubert Mawuli Yevu-Agbi also reported that some media personnel present at a polling station were blocked from capturing ongoing activities.

Apparently, two top party executives – former Parliamentary candidate, Ken Anku and Regional Chairman, John Peter Amewu?were trading words, described as unprintable.

Also at the NPP headquarters in Accra, where similar chaotic situation was reported, former General Secretary, Dan Botwe said the matter was under control.

Voting is ongoing to prune seven aspiring presidential candidates to five in Sunday?s Super Delegates? Congress.

They are two-time presidential candidate for the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, a former Trade Minister in John Kufuor?s administration, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, Member of Parliament for Mampong, Francis Addai Nimoh and Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, a former MP for Offinso.

Others include a former Information Minister, Stephen Asamoah Boateng, Joe Ghartey, MP for Essikado-Ketan and Asuogyaman MP, Osei Ameyaw.
