The Electoral Commission has rescheduled the District Level Elections (DLEs) in some areas in the Ashanti and Eastern regions to Thursday, 21st December 2023.
Speaking to an aspiring Assembly member Elvis Tuffour at Akim Ntronang for Ahenbrono mu electoral area in the Abriem
Municipality on Plan B FM mid-day news, he told Obidehye Kofi Sekyi that, the electorates were ready to vote but all the voting materials were not available as at 8am.
He said, most electorates from in and around Akim Ntronan were stranded at the various polling stations because there was no sign of voting activities at the centers.
