Listen to article

Eighty-seven candidates have filed their nominations to contest the 36 electoral seats in next months' District Assembly elections in the Kwahu South District.

The candidates are made up of 16 women and 71 men, while 1,290 persons including 263 women have also filed their nominations for the 180 places in the unit committee elections in the District.

This was disclosed by the District Electoral Officer, Mr Appiah Agyemang in an interview at Mpraeso.

He said 72 units would be without committee members, as less than ten people filed nominations to contest.

Mr Agyemang said mounting of platforms to introduce the candidates to the electorates had begun in all the electoral areas and appealed to the electorate to participate actively in the exercise to ensure the success of the election.

He advised the candidates to avoid vain promises, since they did not know the financial position of the District Assembly and also urged the electorate to turn up in their numbers to elect credible candidates to serve them in the various electoral areas.
