Sunyani Municipality records low turnout in pilot biometric exercise

Mr Samuel Boadu, Deputy Brong-Ahafo Regional Director of the Electoral Commission (EC) on Monday said the Sunyani Municipality recorded the lowest turnout at the two centres opened for the pilot Biometric Exercise.

He said publicity on the exercise went on well but it was negligence on the part of the electorate that contributed to the low turnout.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Sunyani, Mr Boadu said Sunyani Municipality and Tain District were selected for the exercise.

The two-day exercise which covered the 10 regions was from Saturday, November 3 to Sunday, November 4.

In the Sunyani Municipality, Methodist Primary School Centre at Abesim recorded 87 voter turnout of the total 865 voters registered representing 10 per cent whilst the Bakers Co-operative Office at the Victoria Park recorded 23 voter turnout of the 433 voters registered, representing five per cent.

At the Roman Catholic Church Centre at Nsawka w in the Tain District, 134 voter turnout was recorded out of the 589 registered voters representing 23 per cent, while the Town Council Centre also at Nsawkaw recorded 205 voter turnout of the 768 registered voters representing 27 per cent.
