The fate of electorates at Akuse in respect of the upcoming assembly elections in the Lower Manya Krobo municipality is in a balance as the Supreme Court sits today to determine the merit or otherwise of a motion for an interlocutory injunction restraining the Electoral Commission (EC) from conducting elections in the area.
After years of legal battle, threats of “self-government” and several assurances from the government and the Electoral Commission (EC), the people of Lower Manya Krobo will, on December 3, 2013, have the opportunity to elect their district assembly and unit committee members.
