Tema Central: Polls put on hold at electoral area after picture swap on ballot paper

Voting in the District Assembly elections was put on hold at the Union Electoral Area in the Tema Central constituency due to an error on the ballot sheet.

The pictures of two candidates contesting for the position of Assemblyman were swapped.

This caused the voting process to be put on hold as the EC takes steps to get the issues resolved with the affected candidates calling for a postponement.

The presiding officer for Tema Royal number three annex, Sitso Yaa Agbeko Kra, told Citi News the election will commence once the new ballot papers are printed out.

“We saw an anomaly whiles cross-checking one of the district assembly election ballot papers. The last two candidates had their pictures wrongly placed against their names.”

“We called officials from the office and they came around. When they saw the anomaly, they decided to reprint. They told us to hold on and that they are bringing the new print out so that we continue the elections,” she explained.
