There was a slight fracas Saturday morning, at the YMCA Hostel in Accra where polls are being held to elect an NPP Parliamentary candidate for the Korle Klottey Constituency.

The chaos emerged after some two delegates were prevented from casting their votes at the polling station.

Although both men could be identified as delegates from the tags they had worn around their necks, their names could not be found in the voter’s register.

The situation resulted in a near disruption as members of their team begun to shout to register their displeasure.

At Klottey Korle in Greater Accra, two aspirants, Henry Harold Quartey and Prince Appiah Debrah are competing for the slot.

Background
