In all, 111 candidates made up of 103 males and 8 females are contesting for slots to represent the 34 electoral areas.

Voting started at exactly 7:00 am but the voter turnout at most of the centres was generally low as many of the voting centres were virtually empty.

As at 8:00 am, three out of the four polling centres on the campus of the Sunyani Technical University (STU) with a registered voter population of 2,106 had recorded just a single vote.

The situation at Yawhimakrom,Akokorakwadwo, Baakoniaba and Nkwabeng electoral areas were not different either.
