Why some delegates were denied 'envelope' at Kumasi
Voting is underway at the Bethel Presbyterian Primary and JHS where Asokwa Constituency is holding its voting.
As at 10: 15, 260 delegates out of a total of 905 had cast their ballots.
There was however a little misunderstanding which nearly marred the smooth proceedings.
Some delegates could not find their names in the register while some also were denied their share of the allowance for transport, said to be from Dr Bawumia.
Those who did not get the transport allowance were were reportedly perceived not to be in favour of Dr Bawumia’s candidature.
At least 32 delegates did not see their names in the album used for the election.
Prior to the voting today, the constituency chairman, Rev Benjamin Fosu Nkrumah, a known supporter of Dr Bawumia, had reportedly profiled all the delegates and had an idea about their voting preference and as such decided to exclude those against Dr Bawumia from the transport allowance.
This did not go down well with some of the delegates who became agitated and nearly disrupted the proceedings.
The swift intervention of the Bawumia Campaign Coordinator for Ashanti Region, Patrick Acheampong, resolved the issue.
