The police have arrested two persons following the clash between the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) and New Patriotic Party(NPP) supporters in Nkoranza South, in Bono East Region, over vote transfer.

The altercation occurred over the weekend when a group from the Ashanti Region and Accra COCOBOD arrived at the registration centre to transfer their votes.

The NPP candidate, Harriet Oppong Kyeremanteng, is accused of transporting individuals to influence the transfer process, including ‘macho men’ who clashed with police.

Earlier, the NDC constituency chairman, Mr.Ali Adams, and the secretary, Godfred Dapaah, reportedly warned against illegal vote transfers and the deployment of foreigners, urging security forces and the EC to be vigilant.

This recent incident underscores the ongoing tensions surrounding the vote transfer process in Ghana’s political sphere, as NDC and NPP officials continue to accuse each other of firing weapons at the transfer centres.

The rivalry between both parties has led to violent confrontations, raising concerns about the peaceful conduct of elections.

The deployment of ‘macho men’ and transportation of voters from other regions have escalated the situation, prompting warnings from NDC leaders and calls for vigilance from security forces and the EC.

This comes barely a few days after the same incident happened at Yendi during the vote transfer exercise.

A clash between supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at a voting transfer centre in Yendi resulted in two people, including a media professional, sustaining injuries on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

The altercation occurred when a group allegedly transported from Tamale arrived at the constituency to transfer their votes.

The situation intensified when NDC agents attempted to challenge the legitimacy of these individuals, leading to a violent confrontation.

Among the injured was a media professional who manages Sakara Radio in Yendi.

He was at the centre to monitor the voting transfer process when he sustained a razor blade cut on his neck during the scuffle.
