NPP Youth Organiser Slashed With Machete In Polling Station Officials Election

The New Abirim constituency Youth Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), sustained cutlass wounds after violence broke out during the recent polling station officials election.

Frank Ayim was allegedly attacked by one Alfred believed to be close to the MP for the area after the fight broke out at Dodoworaso polling station Tuesday.

The victim has been admitted to the Abirim Hospital.

The Police have been silent on their investigations into the matter.

The polling station officials’ election of the NPP has been marred by pockets of confusion and violence in the Eastern Region.

Some aggrieved candidates and members of the NPP in the New Juaben South constituency have accused their MP Michael Okyere Baafi of using the armed military, national security officials, and police to intimidate and manipulate the polling station election.

Some unknown persons are also reportedly bused and moved around to vote in Polling stations that they do not have original votes.

On Tuesday for instance, the same tactics were allegedly used to manipulate the election at Koforidua Polytechnic polling station election.

The election which was supposed to come off around 8:00 am was delayed after some candidates resisted attempts to force strange voters bused in two sprinter vehicles to vote.

However, to the surprise of the aggrieved candidates, personnel of the national security, police, and military stormed the polling station centre at about 7:30 pm to supervise the process at the blind side of some of the candidates and delegates who had left for their homes.
