Out of 29 contestants of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries in the Central Region, only three are women.

They are Mrs Elizabeth Amoah-Tetteh, Member of Parliament (MP) for Twifo Atti-Morkwa, Madam Aba Adusah, former District Chief Executive for Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese and Madam Rachel Appoh, Gomoa East

Mr. Samuel Adu-Yeboah, the Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, disclosed these in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Thursday in Cape Coast.

He said all was set for the upcoming primaries on Saturday, January 21, and that ballot papers have been printed while polling centers have also been earmarked for voting.

Mr. Adu-Yeboah said the ballot papers would be handed over to the Electoral Commission on Thursday for distribution to the various constituencies.

He said 10 constituencies would organize conference and voting would be organized in nine constituencies because there would be only an acclamation in the tenth constituency, Efutu, of which the sitting MP, Mr Mike Hamah is going unopposed.

The other constituencies are Cape Coast, Komenda-Edna-Eguafo-Abrem, Abura Asebu Kwamankese, Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam, Mfantseman East and Mfantseman West, Gomoa East and Gomoa West as well as Twifo Atti-Morkwa.

The NDC Regional Chairman said the conferences will begin at 0900 hours and end at about 1400hrs with results declared soon after.

He said the NDC Regional branch did not anticipate any problems during the polls and there would be police presence at the various centers.
