Ayawaso west Wuogon: John Dumelo calls for halt in voting
The National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, John Dumelo, has called on electoral officials as a matter of urgency to halt the ongoing voting exercise conducted at the polling station 1 of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
He expressed unhappiness on how electorates were compelled to cast their ballot even though the indelible ink was not included in the electoral materials that were delivered at that polling station.
Expressing fear, John Dumelo stated that those who were made to cast their vote without the indelible ink could engage in double voting.
He explained that the indelible ink was an indication that one has casted his or her vote, thus without the electorates could vote again once the ink is brought and raise the alarm for the halt in voting.
“I am 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,” he stressed.
Aside that incident of indelible ink the place was Peaceful and the electorates turned out massively to exercise their franchise.
Meanwhile, voting is going on smoothly in other parts of the country since the elections started.
