According to Mr Tettey, residents in these districts had their elections earlier due to issues that came up.

“A court case in Lower Manya and the bankruptcy of two financial institutions in Nkoranza which brought about insecurity issues called for an early voting on October 16, 2018 based on the recommendation of the security agencies,” he explained.
