There were no officials of the Electoral Commission and polling agents at the MP’s residence, the EC distanced itself from the voting that took place at his residence.

Speaking further, Mr Baah Agyeman who said he did not get involved in the elections, asserted that the incumbent MP after the self-conducted elections, was declared winner by the party’s constituency chairman.

According to him, the issue has been reported to the party authorities but they are yet to respond to it.  

A court injunction was placed on voting in the Asante Akyem North constituency in the Ashanti Region in the run-up to the NPP’s parliamentary primaries on Saturday.

As a result of the court injunction, no voting was to be undertaken in all the 22 electoral areas in the constituency.

The injunction was due to the omission of some 145 delegates from the delegates’ album.
