Voter Registration: Tension Mounts In Asawase



There has been growing tension in the Asawase Constituency after some disagreements between members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and that of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

This has come about after MP for the area, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, raised concerns over a polling station he claimed is sited at the residence of the NPP Constituency Ward Chairman which is the Adom Drinking Spot Center located at Asabi in the Constituency.

While Hon. Muntaka insists that the centre be relocated, the Municipal Chief Executive for Asokore Mampong who is also leading the NPP in the area, is of the view that the polling station should be maintained.

He argued, “Polling stations everywhere are either in front of someone’s property, someone’s business area or in someone’s house. Where do we site polling stations, if not on someone’s property? Do we site it on a road? If we move this, it means all the polling station in the constituency must be moved. In fact, in front of the NDC chairman’s father’s house, there is a polling station. This is where the polling station was gazetted and it should be left here. We are okay with it.”

Earlier, armed police officers sent out a supporter of the NDC who threatened to invoke curses on the EC over some issues. His actions nearly resulted in fisticuffs between some supporters of the NPP and NDC.
