How the elections went

From Sunyani, Emmanuel Adu-Gyamerah reports that what started as a smooth exercise for the election of executives of the Bono Region turned chaotic at some point when delegates from nine out of the 12 constituencies finished voting.

The Electoral Commission officials packed their electoral materials and that seemed not to have gone down well with delegates from Sunyani East, Jaman South and Dormaa Central who were yet to exercise their franchise.

The EC officials refused to allow the delegates from the three constituencies to vote because of a court injunction that had been placed on them.

Some aspirants and their supporters were also not happy with the turn of events.

There was a subsequent confusion and it took the swift intervention of the police to prevent some angry delegates from destroying the ballot boxes.

But the Chairman of the Election Committee, Kwabena Oppong, announced that the committee had. not been served with any injunction and stated that the delegates from the three constituencies would be allowed to vote.

"I cannot disenfranchise anybody and perpetuate illegality. Delegates from the three constituencies will vote", he stated.

"When the EC finished counting the votes, we will add what we get from the three constituencies and add to it".

He asked members of the election committee to act as electoral officers for the delegates of the the three constituencies to begin the voting process.

"The committee is clothed with powers. I have not been served any injunction as chairman of the election committee. This is an election for NPP".

With this, new electoral materials were arranged by the chairman of the election committee, Mr Oppong for delegates of the three constituencies to vote as officials stayed glued on the podium under the protection of the police to count the votes of the nine constituencies.
