Disgruntled supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Western North Region's Aowin Constituency have set fire to the party's office over the National Executive Council's (NEC) decision to rerun the previous elections.
Their protests are in response to the council's attempts to rerun the constituency elections due to alleged anomalies in the process.
However, supporters who are angry over the decision say they will fight any attempt to reschedule the elections.
Constituency elections for the NPP descended into chaos in certain parts of the country, with party members threatening to interrupt the process.
Over 413 names were allegedly erased from the register in the Okaikoi South Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, according to reports.
According to the offended delegates, people from other constituencies were included in the registration to participate in the exercise. They further claimed that some National Democratic Congress (NDC) members were inserted to boost the chances of some candidates. In a related development, the poll in the Northern Region's Yendi constituency was postponed due to a misunderstanding regarding which album to use to conduct the elections.
The topic has been referred to the party's steering committee for discussion in order to set a new date.
Meanwhile, party delegates expressed their unhappiness with the development.
They also accused several top party leaders of rigging the election process to benefit their candidates.
