A BIG DRAMA unfolded at Gomoa Postin in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region over the weekend when confusion hit the constituency executives’ election of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the area.

The confusion arose when a contestant observed that the election register did not contain names and pictures of some of the delegates, a situation which infuriated some of the delegates.

Out of the 76 polling stations in the area, only 43 polling stations had their photo albums ready.

They accused John Quam and Solomon Quam of being the architects of the confusion.

Some supporters of one Osei Kwame, an aspiring chairman, who were not happy about the situation, did everything possible to ensure that the election did not come off, hence the confusion.

The electoral officer and regional executives who came to supervise the election had no option than to leave the place around 3:30pm upon a marathon meeting to resolve the issue amicably.

The election was, therefore, postponed to December 28, to ensure a clean register which would not create problems for the party.

At Gomoa West, the incumbent chairman, Joe Donkor was retained.

He polled 444 out of the 736 votes to beat his contender, Madam Abena Pokuah aka, American woman who had 218.

All the old executives were retained except the secretary, Albert Sarfo who lost to Doku Otoo.

At Cape Coast North Constituency, Nana Acquah popularly known as Nana Amissah polled 332 to get the chairmanship position.

She beat her contender, Victor Twum Savage who had 109 votes, while at Cape Coast South, Ernest Arthur had 346 to become the chairman with his contender, Matthew Botchwey getting 105 votes.

At Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese (AAK) Constituency, the incumbent chairman Kofi Karkari had 121 to lose his position to Elvis Morris Donkor who polled 501.

At Mfantseman West, the incumbent chairman, Alhaji Gibrine was able to sail through with 391 votes to beat Noah Essuman who got 341.
