NDC race: Tawiah Boateng booted out, Jowak pulls through as E/R Chairman

The incumbent Eastern Regional Chairman, Bismark Tawiah Boateng has been defeated by his long term political rival, John Owusu Amankrah popularly known as Jowak, a businessman. Jowak polled 379 votes as against 281 votes secured by Tawiah Boateng to revenge a painful defeat he suffered in the hands of Tawiah Boateng in 2014.

Meanwhile, Mark Oliver Kevor, the incumbent Regional Secretary defended his position with a technical Knockout of 538 votes as against 365 polled by his sole contender, Baba Jamal Konney who was the Regional Communication officer.

The Eastern regional NDC election recorded several dramatic incidents before and during the voting process which delayed the election. For instance delegates initially boycotted the event in demand of their transportation fares before they took part in the exercise.

Also, the exercise suffered power outage which was interpreted to be alleged orchestrated attempt to manipulate the polls, a situation which caused chaotic scene and led to suspension of the election for a while. Voting ended around 1:30 am and declaration was done around 3:40 am Sunday.



Bellow is the full list of the certified results.
