A group of people calling themselves the Concern Citizens of Tamale South Constituency (CCTSC) at the weekend expressed dissatisfaction with the Electoral Commission over its annulment of a proposed Tamale West Constituency.
According to them the EC had earlier proposed the Tamale West Constituency to be carved out of the Tamale South, which they noted was too large.
Mr Mohammed Alhassan, President of the CCTSC, who addressed a press conference in Tamale threatened that the constituency would not participate in the coming elections if the EC fails to give the area a constituency.
“The teeming youth are ready to ensure that Tamale South is served well,” he said, adding that members would follow up their demand with series of street protests.
He said the people of the constituency were initially excited when they saw a proposed list of constituencies that were to be created in Tamale.
Mr Alhassan noted that people were happy about plans to carve out a new constituency because Tamale South is too large and among the top 20 constituencies hit by political activities.
He said in terms of statistics, the constituency has 25 electoral areas, 96 polling stations with a provisional voter’s register population of 91,207.
Mr Alhassan said records showed that Tamale South registered 60.493 in the 2004 parliamentary elections and 78,168 voters in 2008.
