Officials of the Electoral Commission who presided over GIMPA polling stations A and B have explained the happenings which cropped up in the wee hours of the election day that led to delay in their processes for about 20 minutes.
Reports had it that actor turned politician, John Dumelo who is fighting to enter parliament on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress NDC in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency had called for a stop in voting in these centres. The reason being lack of indelible ink as at the time.
“I’m disappointed in the process. We don’t have indelible ink here, and they are allowing the process to continue, which is wrong. I suggest that they stop the whole process, let them get the ink before we continue. The indelible ink is the only way to show that you’ve been able to vote.”
One Jonathan Kwame who was the presiding officer of polling station B told GhanaWeb TV that Mr Dumelo wasn’t the only contesting person to complain about the issue.
He added, the Electoral Commission officers there found a way out for some few minutes before the correct indelible ink were brought.
