Voting in some constituencies has been suspended as a result of some unknown landguards who are reported to have stormed the Weija-Gbawe constituency.

It is unclear what their mission was by the armed men numbering about 15 who claimed they are there to protect one executive member, Kwesi Badu.

According to sources, Kwesi Badu was accused of impersonating another member because the his name and picture in the register was different.

The claims which did not go down well for him (Kwesi Badu) turned into a scuffle because he was not allowed to vote and as a result invited landguards to enable him vote.

It is however believed that Kwesi Badu is canvassing for more votes for the aspiring candidate, Tina Mensah.

Some voters according to reports are frightened by the presence of the land guards and have therefore boycotted the exercise forcing electoral officers to suspend the elections.

In the Asokwa constituency in the Ashanti region, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, former Member of Parliament for the Asokwa constituency, has been arrested.

Mr. Kofi Jumah is reported to have torn the voter register on suspicion that it has been doctored to favour incumbent, Patricia Appiagyei.

Voting is currently on hold as party officials try to put things in order.

Parliamentary primaries in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba constituency in the Northern has been called off.

The decision was taken after ballot papers delivered to the constituency by the EC came without the picture of one of the aspirants.

The development according to reports has caused a stir in the constituency as supporters of the affected candidate are raging with anger over the issue.

The presiding Bishop of the Methodist church at Shama in the Western region, Very Rev. Kwamena Essel has disrupted the primaries at the church premise.

According to him, party executives refused to notify him before embarking on the exercise, hence his decision to disrupt the voting.

In spite of the explanation, the Methodist Bishop has vowed to ensure the polling station is moved from the church premises.

Rev. Essel maintained that the church debars political activities on its premises because it must not be seen to be favouring a political party.
