Politics of Sunday, 15 December 2013
The elections conducted by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to elect Constituency Executives ahead of the 2016 general elections ended Saturday across the country on a peaceful note.
Voting was generally peaceful, according to Citi News correspondents across the country.
The executives elected in Saturday's vote will constitute delegates that will elect Parliamentary Candidates and the party's flagbearer for the 2016 elections.
NPP Director of Elections, Martin Adjei-Mensah told Citi News the elections "went as scheduled" and was happy with the outcome.
"Across the country, the process was to start today [Saturday] but not end in itself. It will continue throughout the week until next Saturday. We don't expect any election to go beyond December 21,'' he added.
The Constituency Elections were however, temporarily suspended in the Eastern and Northern Regions due to circumstances beyond control.
Elections in the two regions will be held on Sunday December 15 and on December 17, 2013 respectively.
