Incumbent MP for the Evalue Ajomor Dwira Tanakyi Kesse and his only contender Herbert Dickson Kuah will all have to put on hold their aspirations to contest the seat pending further investigations by the NDC’s national vetting committee. 
 

Even though they were vetted, decision is yet to be taken by the national vetting committee on the petroleum minister Emmanuel Kofi Buah and his contender Mieza Mea Alleah battling the Ellembelle seat, and Kwabena Mintah Akandoh and his contender for the Juabeso seat John Mbe.

At the end of the two day and night vetting processes in the region, chairman of the vetting committee, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo noted that the process was successful, though with few question marks.
He however noted that the caliber of persons who successfully completed the vetting processes has given him the assurance that the NDC will sail through in the 2016 general elections in the western region.
In all, out of the 74 persons who submitted their nomination forms on the 10th of September, 69 persons were vetted. 3 aspirants, Ghana’s ambassador to India, Sam Pee Yalley, contesting the Ahanta West Seat with George Kwame Aboagye, the deputy minister for Roads and Highways and MP for Wassa East, Isaac Adjei Mensah, and MP for the Bodi constituency Sampson Ahi will be vetted at a later date after they wrote to seek permission to absent themselves.

Mumuni Issa from the Akontombra Constituency did not show up for the vetting without written notification to the vetting committee warranting his summary disqualification. Three females out of the 69 vetted aspirants from the Sekondi and Takoradi constituencies also successfully went through the process.
