Voting has been halted at Ningo Prampram in Greater Accra following a disagreement over the eligibility of some 16 delegates.

The polling exercise which was moving smoothly was halted at about 2:30 pm as some voters from two branches who have secured a court order to vote where prevented from voting.

This led to confusion forcing the EC officials to halt the process while the police took position to protect the ballot boxes.

While Micheal Kwetey Tetteh, a contender in the Ningo Prampram primary who was spotted brandishing a court order and his supporters were insisting that the 16 delegates should be allowed to vote, Sam George and his supporters stood their grounds that those delegates would not be allowed to vote.

A contender in the Ningo Prampram Constituency primary, Micheal Kwetey Tetteh earlier hinted of a undesirable outcome should 16 delegates from two branches be prevented from voting.

The High Court in Tema, on Friday ordered the NDC to allow some 16 delegates to partake in the primaries in the Ningo-Prampram constituency.

These individuals are executives from two branches in the constituency who were not sworn in following the party’s branch elections.

As a result, they were also not added to the constituency’s delegates list, thus leaving them out of today’s  primaries.
