The entire NPP Constituency Executives in the Eastern Region are in the Akwatia Constituency to ensure a free and fair polling station executive elections.

The Polling Station Executives elections is scheduled for today, 27th January, 2023 in all the 113 polling stations in the Akwatia Constituency

All the neighbouring constituencies have been invited to Akwatia to support and ensure the election processes run smoothly. These Constituencies include Oda, Suhum, Abirem, Abetifi, Kade, Lower West Akim, Asene Manso Akroso, Upper West Akim, and others.

A total of 1,126 nomination forms were received, out of which 258 are women. This presupposes that every position is being keenly contested by at least two patriots.

During vetting, it became apparent that three people who had filed to contest as Youth Organizers at different polling stations were not qualified on the premise that they were over 40-years-old.

It must be reiterated that the Regional leadership is poised to ensure that fairness, transparency and equity are seen in every step of the process.

Stakeholders and the entire Akwatia Constituency are greatly commended for their cooperation and support. It has been peaceful and exciting thus far and stakeholders are entreated to sustain their composure and respect for the rules of engagement as the first part of the internal elections is brought to a successful end this Friday.

The Regional Chairman, Jeff Konadu Addo, is particularly grateful to all for the support they have given the Regional Executives in their bid to collectively work towards recapturing the Akwatia Constituency seat.
