Voting has started smoothly in all the 34 Electoral Areas in the Zebilla Constituency in the Upper East Region to elect a Parliamentary Candidate to represent the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in forthcoming general election in December.

The Zebilla Constituency seat is being contested by Mr Frank Fuseini Adongo, the incumbent Member of Parliament and Upper East Deputy Regional Minister and Dr John Kingsley Krugu, former National Organizer of NPP, who is also a Public Health worker.
When the Ghana News Agency visited some of the voting centres at about 0830 hours, it observed that all the necessary Coronavirus precautionary and safety protocols were strictly adhered to.
There were veronica buckets filled with water and soap as well as alcohol-based hand sanitizers positioned for delegates to wash and sanitize their hands before being allowed to cast their votes.
The GNA noticed that nose masks were also provided for all delegates who went to the voting centres to cast their votes while security services were stationed at each of the voting centres, to ensure that there was peace during the process.
In an interview with GNA, Mr Dickson Atiah, the Constituency Director of Communications for the NPP said the voting was moving quite smoothly across all the voting centres in the constituency and voting is expected to end at 1300 hours in all centres.
According to him, some Electoral Areas had already finished voting and mentioned places such as Tanga Electoral Area and Azuware Electoral Area and counting would begin after voting had officially closed at all voting centres across the constituency.
