Why Nkoranza & Lower Manya districts voted for new Assembly members in 2018 and not yesterday

The just-ended assembly and unit committee elections was not held in three districts, thus Nkoranza North and South and Lower Manya Krobo and residents will have to wait until 2022 to vote.

That was because the elections were held there last year, and that those places would hold the elections when the tenure of those in office ended after four years.

Many Ghanaians have been wondering what might have caused this.

In September 2015, the EC on the advice of the then Brong Ahafo Regional Security Council suspended district level elections in Nkoranza South and Nkoranza South districts because of a possible disruption of the process.

The election was not held until 2018.

In the case of the Lower Manya District, the Supreme Court in 2015 ruled that the election in the area be suspended over challenges with electoral area demarcations.

Based on the conclusion of the case, the various electoral areas in Lower Manya Krobo voted last year.

This year, members of the general Ghanaian public elected new assembly heads and unit committee members for the next four-year term after the expiration of the tenure of the current leaders this year. The exercise ended largely in peace.
